Breastfeeding Help in Ogden, Utah

8 Jan

January is when we can take a breath and take a new look at parenting.  Often, December is a time of frantic activity, rich foods and little time for

baby (other than being passed around at parties).  Our bodies will often force us to remember to slowdown by getting plugged ducts, mastitis and even abscesses.

It’s okay to rest with your baby.  You are forming neurons when you sit and just smile at him.  🙂 La Leche League has a great FAQ about mastitis.

Mastitis

If you feel like you have been run over by a truck, or just plain yucky, go to bed.  Honor your body’s wisdom and allow it to heal itself.  Your baby will love the time and attention.

And of course, if you aren’t getting better with normal home remedies, please call your health care provider or local IBCLC for help.

Here in Ogden, and along the entire Wasatch Front, we are having such a terrible inversion that a good snuggle with your baby isn’t such a bad idea even if you don’t have plugged ducts.  Breastfeeding protects your baby against RSV, Asthma, and other respiratory illnesses.
