I *wish* I had discovered these helpful links & information BEFORE baby.
kellymom.com There is a TON of information here on ALL things baby. Just type in what you are are wondering and read until your heart is content.
- My favorite is this article on sleep and the nursing baby. I ran into the same problem my 4 month old started waking up to feed in the middle of the night after two months of sleeping great!
Mississippi Breastfeeding Medicine Clinic – Tips from the Trenches (under notes) is a gift to the entire breastfeeding community. It’s FREE access to a breastfeeding doctor’s notes that she gives to her patients. No booby traps here!
(Not familiar with booby traps it’s advise that is highly unhelpful given by everyone)
Infant Risk Center is run by Dr. Hale (THE Dr. Hale) at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. If you want to talk to someone about a medication you need to take or have been told to take, they are open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm central time. The lady that answered my call was very friendly and fast! This is a great resource for both pregnant and breastfeeding moms.
They also have an app for iPhone & Android. I haven’t installed it on my phone, but if I’m ever in a late night or weekend situation you can bet that I’ll be downloading it no matter the cost! To have that info 24/7 is really great.
My husband just asked “that’s it in a nutshell?”…. Yep, everything I’ve needed is contained in those pages. Sometimes it requires a little digging, but I do believe that it is all there. The only other page I refer to is a dairy ingredients list because I’m still avoiding dairy. You can read more about that here.
Like most people, we spent a lot of time googling our breastfeeding questions, concerns, and problems only to find inaccurate information. These links were our savior from those booby traps and many other things that could have led us away from nursing.
Do you have any resource links that you refer to? Or books?
