Season 2 Episode 9: Breast Milk Supply - Is baby getting enough milk?
Did you know that one of the most common reasons that moms stop breastfeeding is fear of not having enough milk?
How do we know if a baby is getting enough milk?
In this episode, you will learn how much milk a baby actually needs, how we know there is enough, myths about milk supply, and signals that may indicate when further help is needed.
This information is for parents and for professionals who care for breastfeeding parents. Even if you are not a lactation consultant, it is vital for you to be able to either reassure your patients, give them simple ways to ensure adequate milk transfer, or refer them for expert lactation care.
I’ve included a list of risk factors to be aware of, simple interventions if low milk supply is suspected, and the role of the IBCLC in milk supply assessment and treatment.
