It can be challenging to time a feeding around a pediatric visit. But it does help to remember that because the composition of breastmilk is changing constantly throughout the day, you never have to worry about overfeeding a breastfed baby. Feeding 30 minutes before you head out the door can help keep your baby calm during your trip to the doctor. And placing her on your breast right after your visit is great for post-doc soothing.
