    Breastfeeding, Who's on Your Team

    in Health

    Today Shirley Gutkokwski will explore the team that is needed to support women so they can breasfeed their babies successfully. This means healthy babies and happy moms. Today's guest is  Dr. Lawrence Kotlow is a 1972 graduate of SUNY Buffalo Dental School, and completed his pediatric dental residency at the Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio between 1972-1974. Since 1974 he has had a private practice in Albany, New York. He became Board Certified in Pediatric dentistry in 1980 , and is a Fellow in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. 


    The topics we will cover today will include but not be limited to the breastfeeding team, why mothers need a team effort in getting their infants  breastfeeding  without problems for either the mom or the  infants. The role of the pediatric dentist, IBCLC and cranial sacral therapist is developing the mother infant  relationship during  breastfeeding.  


    From the moment the baby is born, in a perfect world, someone on the delivery  team should acess the baby for tongue or lip tie.  These small issues  can be easily corrected and often go unnoticed, these babies can have trouble sucking, latching on or even have failure to thrive which my be blamed on something unrelated, when infact a simple procedure can solve this issue.  If a mother has an abundance of milk this may not be noticed at first and ultimately affect tooth and jaw devlopment.


    Join us today to learn more about the world of breastfeeding and who on the team can support babies and moms.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor  (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
