Dr. Katherine A. Dettwyler is an anthropology professor at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. She is also a lecturer, author and breastfeeding advocate.
Dr. Dettwyler is best known for her work studying the duration of breastfeeding in humans as it relates to other mammals, primarily the nonhuman primates. According to her research, the natural age of weaning is 2½ to 7 years old as determined by weight gain, length of gestation, dental eruption, and other factors. She also studies the cultural context of breasts and breastfeeding in the United States, and is currently doing research on women in the US who nurse their children longer than 3 years.
Breastfeeding a baby with a congenital heart defect has unique and special challenges. Many babies with critical congenital heart defects are taken away from the mother before having a chance to nurse at all. These babies also frequently have open-heart surgery within the first days or weeks of life and are often intubated and paralyzed which can interfere with the baby's natural sucking reflex. How can mothers breastfeed these medically fragile children? What myths surround breastfeeding a baby with a congenital heart defect? What are the benefits of breastfeeding and what can mothers do if their babies are too weak to nurse? We'll discuss these topics and more with two heart moms who have breastfed their babies and a nurse who is a breastfeeding specialist.

My guest is Hector Cruz a concerned dad and in my book, a rock star: Here is a note from him all about his amazing project! Tune in live, call us with questions and comments!
Project: Breastfeeding is my goal of helping to destigmatize public breastfeeding, and I believe education is where it all starts. New fathers need education about the benefits of breastfeeding and how much of a significant role they actually play in establishing a great breastfeeding relationship between the mother and child. I want women to feel empowered and determined to do what is the most natural thing for themselves and for their child and to have their husbands as their biggest supporters would just be the perfect finale. Society needs to change and accept breastfeeding as normal! That is the ultimate goal of Project: Breastfeeding. I also am motivated to get this journey to a national level and be successful enough to the point of having billboards with the photos of real moms nursing their babies while the daddy stands proud by her side. I am thriving to have these images all over major cities in the United States of America in hopes that the images will serve as a visual reminder that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and will break down the stigma of public breastfeeding. . Lastly, I want to turn this project into a non-profit establishment that will offer breastfeeding support classes to fathers. As husbands, we want to be there for our wives and our children, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. I want women to know that their husbands are here to support, empower, and help them on their breastfeeding journey.

August 9th Discerning Childbirth seminar
Kristen Tea and Crystal Wolf discuss breastfeeding in public. How we can support breastfeeding mothers. We touch upon what a new mom's experience vs a veteran mother's experience may be and how these experiences can affect our image as women, as mothers as well as the men, boys and girls in the world!
Did you know that co-sleeping and bed-sharing are two different things? Do you know the protective benefits of sleeping near your baby (whether or not you are on the same surface)? Listen to Dr. McKenna explain what our babies NEED from their parents/caregivers.
Professor James J. McKenna Ph.D, recognized as the world’s leading authority on mother-infant co-sleeping, in relationship to breastfeeding and SIDS. In recognition of his work in 2009 he was admitted as a Fellow into the select body of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's most prestigious scientific society.
Initially Professor McKenna specialized in studying the social behavior of monkeys and apes but the birth of his son in 1978 he began to apply the principles of human behavioral evolution to the understanding of human infancy. At the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, Department of Neurology his research team pioneered the first studies of the physiology and behavior of mothers and infant sleeping together and apart, using physiological and behavioral recording devices.
Listen as Dr. McKenna shares wisdom from his book "Sleeping with Your Baby," and research about sleeping with or near your baby.

You would think that breastfeeding is easy considering most of us have put our boobs in someone's mouth at one point or another.
Just because the mechanics seem obvious, it doesn't mean breastfeeding is free of complications. We all can't look like Madonna and child, especially because those pointy bras are hard to come by.
In this episode Toni interviews Grace Aldrich, and together they explore the ins and outs of breastfeeding, point the listeners towards resources, and also describe their own experiences.
Join Intuitive Mom Ann O'Brien as she interviews Brooke Kochel about the more spiritual, less talked about aspects of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding produces amazing love hormones, balances the chakras, and forms a sacred bond between mother and child. It also impacts sex and family life, and can bring up struggles for the everyday mom. We'll also cover topics such as social expectations, nursing in public, breastfeeding and weaning older children, transitioning to nutritional foods, and even breastmilk ice cream!
Brooke Kochel is the owner of Bendi Baby which makes yoga mats for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. She holds a Masters Degree in Child Development and is a yoga teacher trained under Shiva Rea. Named Best Midwife & Best Doula by Dallas Child Magazine, she's taught mindful birth, breastfeeding and parenting to hundreds of mamas in the last 13 years. She's passionate about natural family living and promoting spiritual motherhood.
