030 Supplementing Breastfeeding for Lower Producing Parents

What do adoption, surrogacy, partnering with a birthing parent, breast/chest surgery, and insufficient glandular tissue (IGT) have in common?  Parents who CAN and DO breastfeed.  In most of these situations, parents will need to supplement their milk production with extra milk or formula in order to meet their babies needs.  How that supplementation goes greatly impacts the long term success of breastfeeding.  So, while we can address how to make the most milk possible, it is also at least as important to address how to work with what milk is there.  In today's podcast, we discuss how to determine whether supplementation is needed, how much to supplement, and tools for delivering the supplement.
