Breast Feeding Consult

Dear Mom, Congratulations on your decision to breast feed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding until your baby’s 6 month birthday and up to 1 year of age or longer in addition to solid foods.

Mothers breasts have been under control of hormones to make the early milk that has been present since the end of your pregnancy. The early milk is called colostrum and may be thick, yellow or clear and is only about 1 teaspoon (5-7ml) in quantity. It is just enough volume for your baby’s very tiny stomach (about the size of a shooter marble). New-Mom’s breasts now depend on the baby suckling to change colostrum to milk for your baby (or a pump if your baby is unable to suckle).

What to Expect in 2-24 hours:

✓ Your baby will be alert immediately after birth and will be looking to feed with in the first 1-2 hours.
✓ As baby sucks the milk, the volume increases gradually.
✓ Your baby may feed a few times initially
✓ Offer breast feeding when ever baby shows signs of hunger.

Here are some questions you might be asked.

✓ Does your baby feed at least 8 times in 24 hours?
✓ Is your baby having at least 2-3 stools per day?

Immunization

It is wise to immunize.  I will take care of newborns, infants & children to honor the parents concerns if parents decide not to immunize, to immunize later or on a different schedule.

We do our very best to make the process comfortable for your child. We are open to discuss any concerns or questions parents have about vaccination.  Remember vaccines protect your child against vaccine-preventable diseases. Discuss with us to ensure your child receives the vaccine protection he or she deserves

 Detailed information about each immunization is available on the CDC’s Vaccination Information Sheets online at
