Nursing Rooms and NYC Politics

Nursing Rooms and NYC Politics
Photo Credits: Mother's Milk Bank Northeast

It almost seems like the words "nursing room" and "politics" do not belong in the same sentence. In a perfect world we would not have to think twice about why and how we should provide nursing rooms to mom who need to breastfeed or breast pump. In a perfect world it would not be political. Society as a whole would recognize it as an human necessity, like we do bathrooms and not think it's ok to breastfeed or pump in a bathroom to boot.

Pregnancy & Mental Health: Insights for the Journey

Pregnancy & Mental Health: Insights for the Journey
By Selome Araya, MPH
Birth & Postpartum Doula
Reiki Healing Practitioner
 
The birth and postpartum period are a very sacred and delicate time for a mother. When preparing for pregnancy and birth, pregnancy literature and medical healthcare workers tend to focus on the the physical aspect of pregnancy, while the emotional and mental well-being of the mother often takes a backseat. Though it is vital to focus on ensuring physical comfort during pregnancy and birth, as a mother is experiencing a life-changing journey, her emotions and spirit will also need nurture and care as well.

Benefits of Exercise for Nursing Moms

Benefits of Exercise for Nursing Moms
Moms we all know how we want to get back to our pre-pregnancy body ASAP!!! Remember, its not how fast we get back to it but how healthy we do it in.  Before you start any new diet/exercise regime make sure that you get medical clearance from your doctor.  Light to moderate exercise along with a healthy diet has many benefits for a nursing mom.  Some key benefits are:
 
1. Bone Health
2. Weight Management 
3. Mental Health-  Decreases your risk of Post-Partum Depression
4. Increase your Post-Partum recovery
5. Increase energy- Moms you know this is the one thing we really lack in with a newborn!!  And affects our “Mom Brain”
 

 
In some cases when a mom has just finished exercising and tries to nurse her baby, the baby may not like the taste of the breast milk.  This is because of the lactic acid that has formed during your exercise session. Although the lactic acid is not toxic it seems to occur when moms do a rigorous exercise routine. If your baby does not like th taste of your breast milk light to moderate exercise may help. The increase level can be present up to 90 minutes at post exercise.  Some things that you can do to ease your mind if this does occur is:
 
1. Nurse your baby before you exercise
2. Pump and store your milk so after you exercise you have a supply handy
 
Two more important tips for out fit moms are:
 
1. To have a sturdy sports bra to support your breasts because they are precious to your baby. A sturdy bra will also prevent nipple rips!
2. To make sure you shower after you exercise.  Any sweat on your breast can leave a salty taste in your baby’s mouth.
 
Remember moms it all about having fun!!!  Getting together with other new moms to have  a workout partner is great motivation!

Wendy Williams Calls Breasts Fun Bags

Wendy Williams Calls Breasts Fun Bags

This morning Alyssa Milano was a guest on the Wendy Williams Show and Wendy brought up Alyssa's breastfeeding advocacy work. Wendy said she disagreed with public breastfeeding and felt women should go breastfeed in car or cover up. I think Alyssa was just as shocked as us listening to her opinion of breastfeeding. She asked Wendy if she would cover her head eating or if it was ok for Miley Cyrus to walk around with her boobs hanging out vs. a mom breastfeeding.

Are Airports Lying to Nursing Moms - Are They Really Breastfeeding Friendly?

Are Airports Lying to Nursing Moms - Are They Really Breastfeeding Friendly?

Traveling moms don’t have it easy. There’s a lot of coordination that goes into plane traveling with young children or a newborn. You have to think about how you’re going to maneuver the airports (listed in our airport nursing rooms locator) and get your children from point A to point B seamlessly. In a perfect world it would be seamless but moms often have to deal with luggage, strollers, car seats for the plane, entertaining children or keeping a newborn calm during a flight, stares and comments from less than understanding passengers and then the whole fiasco de-boarding. But what if you are a nursing mom? Traveling with kids or not if a mom is nursing she will also need to coordinate time to breastfeed or breast pump.
