HEALTHBEAT 4: Benefits of breastfeeding

The benefits of breastfeeding are life-long.

"For baby, it is decreased risk of SIDS, decreased allergy risk, asthma risk, decreased obesity risks..," said Ellen DeJong-Pedersen, Certified Lactation Consultant at Mercy Medical Center. "Studies have shown that breastfed babies over time  tend to have higher IQ levels."

Not only does the baby benefit from breastfeeding, but the mother does as well.

"For mom, it decreases her risk of breast cancer, decreases her risk of developing osteoporosis later in life, it also helps her to get back to her- closer to her," said DeJong-Pedersen.

In addition, it also gives more bonding time between the baby and it's mother with close skin-to-skin contact.

Unfortunately, there are women that can't physically breastfeed for a number of reasons.

Certified Lactation Consultant at Mercy Medical Center, Ellen DeJong-Pedersen says there are alternatives.

"We have what is called an SNS, a Supplemental Nursing System, where we can actually facilitate breastfeeding- the touch, the feel, for mom and baby," said  DeJong-Pedersen.

Has anyone used a Supplemental Nursing System?

I ordered a Medela Supplemental nursing system today. My daughter isn't gaining weight, but also will not take a bottle.

For those who have used them, how was your experience? Are they easy to use? Any tips?


I think they are a pain and like Mystic said, counterproductive for the most part. I would get in touch with a lactation consultant. You need to make sure that your baby has the best latch possible, try different positions, try massaging your breast from


I've heard Lact-aid is easier than the medela one.

Honestly I've only helped one woman use one, her baby wasn't gaining "enough". Then it got to the point that she was giving the baby more breastmilk in the supplementer each
