The Benefits of Cups with Straws

Jun 4, 2013 3:06:39 PM

Boob Scoop

If transitioning your baby to using a cup, consider one with a straw. Breastfed babies tend to do better with a straw cup since it's more similar to how they extract milk from the breast. Cups with a straw are also said to be better for speech development, since they allow for the tongue to move into a more natural position. Dentists love them too since liquid flows quicker through the mouth, and therefore spends less time on the teeth. Despite these benefits, some moms think their babies' experience gassiness from using a straw cup. So if your baby prefers the spout for starters, that's fine too! Eventually, we all learn to drink from a straw. Here are some great tips on how to introduce a straw cup:

Breast storage capacity refers to how much breastmilk a mother can hold in her breasts in between feedings. Storage capacity is not determined by breast size, although breast size can certainly limit the amount of milk that can be stored. A mother with a larger milk storage capacity may be able to go longer between feedings, without impacting milk supply and her baby’s growth. A mother with a smaller storage capacity, however, may need to nurse her baby more often to satisfy her baby’s appetite and maintain milk supply, since her breasts will become full quicker. In the end, either capacity can allow a mother to produce enough breastmilk for her baby.

The Changing Color of Breastmilk

May 14, 2013 2:06:38 PM

Boob Scoop

There is no need to get your eyes checked out if you notice changes in the color of your breastmilk! In general, human milk tends to be clear or have a bluish tint when it first starts to flow and becomes more creamy and white by the end of a pumping or nursing session. In addition, certain foods, herbs, nutritional supplements and medications can change the milk's color to shades of pink, orange, red, brown, green and even black. Although the colors may be strange to see, the changes in the color of breastmilk are usually diet-related and not at all dangerous.

Babies, Breastmilk and Iron

Apr 29, 2013 4:47:52 PM

Boob Scoop

Boob Scoop: Healthy, full-term babies have enough iron stores in their bodies to last for at least the first six months. In addition, the iron in breastmilk is better absorbed than that from other sources due to its levels of vitamin C and lactose, which aid in iron absorption. Here’s an excellent piece by Kellymom on what’s normal when it comes to iron levels, why iron supplementation is not the answer for every baby and a list of great foods that are naturally rich in iron.
