Fed is Best Foundation
Greater than 1 in 5 mothers have been shown to have insufficient milk in the first days of life, which lead to excessive weigh loss in their newborns. An estimated 1 in 20 mothers have true milk insufficiency. 1 in 10 babies develop jaundice due to insufficient breast milk intake, which is the leading cause of preventable newborn hospitalizations worldwide. Jaundice is a marker of insufficient feeding. Breastfeeding mothers are sent home with no guidelines for how much breast milk their baby needs. No one knows what a breastfeeding child is receiving. Mothers are simply told that their breast milk is enough...until it isn't. You can prevent it.
