Breastfeeding Economics: Milk Supply and Demand

This week we’re diving into the economics of breastfeeding, a little something we like to call supply and demand. What most moms don’t know when they start their breastfeeding journey is that their bodies are already prepared to produce and supply enough breastmilk to meet their baby’s every nutritional need for the first several months of his or her life. It’s just one of the things that makes motherhood so completely awe-inspiring. Of course, while that ability is deeply ingrained in our very being, our own thoughts and fears can make it easy to ignore our intuition. Am I making enough milk? Is he hungry? Am I overfeeding her? How do I regulate my supply? Am I doing this right? These are just a few of the questions that every single mom asks herself. That second-guessing can lead even the most confident momma down the wrong path. So let’s talk about it! Our guest today is Ann Bennett, an Austin-based IBCLC with Nest Collaborative and breastfeeding encyclopedia who will most certainly put your mind at ease. Join us for today's show!
