Milk is what we feed our babies, be it from the breast or bottle.
Whether it be your first child or your third child, as a paediatrician I am keen to help with breastfeeding concerns, and support breastfeeding in all ways possible:
- Antenatal breast and nipple preparation
- Using Breast Consultants
- Ensuring no anatomical issues, like tongue tie interference
- Medicate where necessary to increase milk production and treat underlying bacteria (mastitis/abscesses) or fungal (thrush) complications
- Frequently assessing growth and development.
But, when needed, I also love assisting in choosing appropriate milk for a baby to deal with all the potential underlying issues from:
- Lactose Intolerance
NB: LACTOSE ISSUES ARE RELATED TO CARB DIGESTION vs COW’S MILK PROTEIN ALLERGY
