We review several topics including hair cortisol levels and breastfeeding, the effect of childhood radiation and lactation, genetic mutation for low prolactin, and more!
What are the breastfeeding benefits of having 2 hours of quiet time on postpartum units? Did you know parental exercise increases a substance in milk that affects infant fat metabolism? What do we really know about breast/chest irradiation in children and subsequent lactation? Perhaps low prolactin is genetic- is there evidence for this? And, don’t miss our convo about hair cortisol in children and their breastfeeding duration. So much to cover!
