Supplementing feeds for newborns – Fed is Best

This story about a newborn dying of clusterfeeding is making its way around the internet recently, and it is garnering a lot of attention. And it should. (The CBS article is inaccurate has been corrected. Still, read the mom’s blog post for the most correct information.) I didn’t realize that there is a foundation warning about the oversight in breastfeeding.

I have written about my newborn’s jaundice experience, where I complained about the lack of information about supplementing (pumped or formula) in the early days. In our case, it thankfully didn’t matter. But others have not been so lucky.

Spread the word: Fed is Best.
