Bloom's Prenatal Breastfeeding Checklist: use this checklist to ensure that you are getting the best prenatal care related to breastfeeding. This will help you to be prepared and proactive if there are any issues identified.
Prenatal Colostrum Expression: we highly recommend that women collect colostrum prenatally if they are having a baby who is at risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) after birth or if there is a likelihood of mother and baby separation after birth. Hand expression should be taught to all women - here is a great teaching tool for hand expression. An excellent example of a colostrum collection protocol including who should consider collecting colostrum and how to do it. Colostrum can be collected on to spoons or in to small syringes. If you need access to supplies to collect colostrum prenatally please visit our store or ask your care provider.
Bloom's Test Weights Handout: this handout outlines the cases in which it might be very useful to complete these weights of your breastfeeding baby. A highly accurate scale, such as the one we rent, is able to measure how much millk a baby drinks from the breast. This handout provides instructions on how to easily perform test weights.
