Adoptive moms can breastfeed

Postby Anne » Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:18 am

For adoptive moms considering breastfeeding (Isthmus article "Ain't nothing like the real thing," April 5, 2013 issue, page 26 or see http://m.isthmusparents.com/isthmus/art ... icle=39565 )
there are some excellent on-line supports. See Adoptive Breastfeeding Resource Website http://www.fourfriends.com/abrw/
(Help and practical advice for adoptive mothers who would like to breastfeed. Especially see “Darrilyn’s Corner”)

La Leche League general information on adoptive nursing http://www.lalecheleague.org/FAQ/adopt.html
Stories of mothers who have nursed adopted babies http://www.lalecheleague.org/NB/NBadoptive.html

Dr. Jack Newman’s handout on adoptive breastfeeding http://breastfeedinginc.ca/content.php? ... e=doc-BABB

And be sure to read the excellent article by Karleen Gribble,
“Mental Health, Attachment and Breastfeeding: Implications for Adopted Children and Their Mothers.” International Breastfeeding Journal, 9 March 2006. You can read it on line at
