Our approach to breastfeeding is quite simple. In every situation, the most important thing is the health of the mother and the baby. That means, Rule #1: Feed the baby! The next 2 items of importance are the breastfeeding parent’s comfort and health and maintaining the milk supply. Those 3 things are major considerations when any of us are working with a breastfeeding dyad. There are times when we do recommend supplementation. There are times when we help a client decide that breastfeeding may not be right for them. We are, however, breastfeeding advocates and believe that human milk is the appropriate food for human babies and that breastfeeding is beneficial to parents, babies and the planet.
