I had dinner with a friend last night. She told me when we were waiting for our bill that the family that had just left the table next to us had made her uncomfortable. The mama had been breastfeeding her baby at the table. My friend thought breastfeeding should be “private.” I asked her, then, if…

I’m told it can be dangerous during the third trimester because the nipple stimulation can cause contractions. Thoughts?

Anyone heard anything of this? I found out about this through one of my patients. She said it is only about $150 and compatible with the major pump brands. It’s basically just a motor and you can hook it up with Medela, Avent, or Hygeia pump and their parts!

Finished my IBCLE required clinical hours, got through my lucky random board exam audit (thanks for stealing more money from me), and got switched to a full-time position at lab with mandatory overtime….hopefully I will find time to study for the IBCLC exam! Here I come July! (still waiting for them to assign me a CBT seat)

Can’t wait! :D
