This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing Dr. Amanda Jones, board certified pediatrician and international board certified lactation consultant opens in a new windowabout breast feeding. Nursing is a hot topic and people have many opinions, so how do you know what is fact vs. fiction? You listen to Dr. Amanda Jones! She knows if nipple confusion is real, whether you can start pumping right away or if you should wait, whether pumping and dumping does any good and so much more. Dr. Jones will also explain ways to improve poor latch and low production, and advise on the ‘right’ time to stop nursing. Dr. Jones has an incredibly rare and valuable vantage point on this subject given her extensive training as a pediatrician and a lactation consultant, so this is a show not to be missed!
