Our fun fact for today is about 💩 Did you know that baby poop doesn't start out smelly? That's right! A baby's first poop(s) are called meconium. Depending on how frequently your baby poops in the first few days of life, s/he may actually get all of the meconium out before you even leave the hospital.
Today let's talk about teething and breastfeeding.It is so difficult as a parent to see our child in pain. Besides the gas and bowel pain that can occur as baby learns to regulate his/her digestive system, teething is our first major and sustained introduction to infant pain.
Here at Once Upon a Lullaby, we always want to encourage families to at least consider the option of breastfeeding, due to the tremendous health benefits and bonding opportunities for both mother and baby. However, we recognize that breastfeeding is not necessarily the right option (or even a possibility) for every family, and we completely respect and support families in whatever feeding method they choose.
