    Dating While Breastfeeding: Stories of lactating singles

    Today on the Milk Minute we wanted to give a nod to all of our breastfeeding friends who are dating and doing their best to find a balance as a single parent.

Eternally grateful

This podcast (and Beyond the Boob) is a huge contributing factor to my successful birth and first few days postpartum. Here are a few of the things that came up that I was informed about because of binging this podcast in the 3rd trimester: second day cluster feeding, expressing colostrum for my Coombs (?) positive baby, nipple shields, tongue and lip tie, syringe feeding, delayed cord clamping, pacifiers, and literally countless others. I am so lucky to have had an amazing team of informed nurses and LCs at my hospital that made a huge difference in my experience, but I also was armed with knowledge of my own not to be discouraged and to ask the right questions. Literally life changing, and I am forever grateful.

Must listen while pregnant!

I listened to almost every episode while pregnant and truly believe it played a huge role in my successful start to breastfeeding.

It allowed me to feel confident and informed postpartum when I otherwise felt groggy and tired. The lactation consultant who came to check on me postpartum thought this was my second baby as I looked “ so comfortable and had a great hold and latch”

Everyone’s journey is different but I truly think going into breastfeeding informed made a huge difference!

Must listen for new moms!

Best lactation podcast

I never write reviews but felt that I needed to. It took me a while to find a really good lactation podcast and I found it!!! I’m an IBCLC and love this podcast. So educational, funny, entertaining, and relatable. Love all the evidenced based info! It has really helped me be a better lactation consultant. Great job Maureen and Heather!!
