Is breastfeeding better for babies than formula? — WHYY

Little Calla wasted no time coming into the world.

“Basically, I went from 4 to 10 centimeters in a half-hour, and she was born very, very fast — kind of unexpected,” said Maria McCorry, holding her newborn daughter.

Her husband is a colleague. The family invited us to the hospital in Philadelphia.

After Maria delivered, her baby was weighed in the same room and the pair were wheeled into the recovery room together.

“She’s been in here ever since. So she hasn’t left at all,” Maria said.

It’s a comfort keeping her daughter close, she says.

“It’s definitely exhausting, but I’m glad she’s here. I’m breastfeeding her, so it’s nice to be able just to have her right here with me,” Maria said. “I also can have that paranoid-new-mom thing, even though she’s our third, where I make sure she’s breathing constantly.”

Keeping mom and baby together instead of using the nursery is part of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative,  an international program that promotes breastfeeding. It’s been adopted by hundreds of American birthing hospitals over the past decade.

Stopping breastfeeding at 2 months due to blood pressure medicine?

Hi there! I had high blood pressure before I got pregnant and all through my pregnancy and I ended up with pre-eclampsia and was induced early. I had to have my gallbladder removed 2 weeks ago and my milk supply never came back like it was coming before


Ask your OB to put you on "Adalat". I also had pre-ecclampsia, and my BP (my daughter just turned 1 last week), is still high and I will be on meds for the rest of my life. Adalat IS safe for a nursing mother (I still nurse once a day).


Put it this way. If you opt out of taking the medicene you take a higher risk of serious illness and not being able to be their for your child. Their is nothing to feel guilty about. Many parents don't even breastfeed from the beginning. Certain formulas


What blood pressure medication are you needing to take?
There are some that are approved for breastfeeding. I would work with a certified lactation consultant along with your Dr to find one that will work for you that is approved for use in breastfeeding.
