What do you know about the difference in breastmilk quality after 1 year postpartum? The breastmilk odor has been found calming to infants, but how and when? Why might breastfed children have fewer febrile seizures? What is the recommendation for the use of antihistamine during lactation?
We start out by discussing a study that evaluates milk composition during tandem nursing. We then review findings of a few very well-done studies- one on the calming effect of breastmilk odor, and another on the relationship between breastfeeding and risk of febrile seizures. During our last several minutes we talk about various medications during lactation, including anti-histamines, anti-cholinergics, and vasodilators. Join us!!
