Inducing Lactation / Relactation / Adoptive Breastfeeding

KellyMom Page on Adoptive Breastfeeding / Relactation

  • Induced lactation in a mother who has never been pregnant or never breastfed is slightly different than relactation (bringing in a milk supply in a woman who has previously lactated before) Not knowing your situation yet, this Kelly Mom page has a wealth of resources for both. Rather than copying the whole list, here is the link!

 

Ask Lenore - A great page by Lenore Goldfarb on the most well-know induced lactation protocol called the Newman-Goldfarb protocol. This page from Dr. Newman about inducing lactation as well. Alyssa from above has added this update to the protocol.

Breastfeeding Rights

  • This Link is to a great advocacy toolkit for breastfeeding parents. It is from California but has great information regarding talking to your employer, having time to pump, etc. You can download it and it has a whole chapter on lactation rights for adoptive parents.

 

Also, reading blog posts of successful (that has a lot of different definitions!) adoptive breastfeeding mommas can be helpful too. Here is a nice one!
