“Tips from the Trenches”
by Dr. Becky Saenz, MD, FABM, IBCLC
Through the Emerald Coast Alliance for Breastfeeding Support, Dr. Becky Saenz, MD, FABM, IBCLC has developed “Tips from the Trenches.” First off, this is an awesomely amazing name. Love it! Even better, she’s offering her “tips” for free! Yup, you read that right, for free. Each tip is in the form of a handout and covers topics from getting started with breastfeeding and working from preemies, to increasing your milk supply, dealing with sore nipples, mastitis, jaundice, plugged ducts, thrush, oversupply and vasospams, going back to work, dairy intolerance, traveling with a breastfed baby and extended breastfeeding. She also addresses postpartum depression, tongue-tie and breastfeeding after a c-section in addition to other topics not mentioned here. Pretty much anything a parent needs to know about breastfeeding, well Dr. Becky Saenz has it covered. You can download them individually here. These handouts are a MUST HAVE for all lactation specialists and those aspiring to be. Best yet, they are written in accessible language and they are FREE!
Approval has been given to reproduce these handouts as long as they are for educational purposes only.
