It’s a stressful time for parents as the United States faces an infant formula shortage. Our very own Sheila Janakos, MPH, IBCLC and CEO of Healthy Horizons advises new parents on how to source and/or find alternative options that are safe and meet your baby’s nutritional needs.
This is called relactating. It involves frequent breast stimulation with a hospital grade pump and possibly bringing your baby back to the chest/breast.
Professional hospital grade pumps can be rented here. Seek guidance from an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) to help with a plan.
Need time and a safe place to pump at work? Become familiar with the workplace breastfeeding laws in your state. Even if your state doesn’t have specific workplace breastfeeding laws, don’t worry, you are still protected. Check out our resource for comparing state and federal laws.
Does your workplace have a designated safe and comfortable place to pump? Healthy Horizons provides world class corporate lactation rooms for Fortune 100 companies and many other workplaces across North America. Contact us for an expert lactation room assessment, mothers room design and installation, lactation equipment, furnishings and services.
Remember: Human milk or infant formula provides a nutritional foundation for the baby’s growing brain. It’s an important building block for the baby’s first year. The baby’s brain grows for three years! Feeding the baby the proper nutrition during this time is critical.
