How to use lactation in a sentence?

  1. Lauren Reyes:

    Not every community has access to a lactation consultant, and while talking to friends and family can be good, they are anecdotal, [Moms] want to hear an unbiased, professional opinion.

  2. Trish MacEnroe:

    Our message is not a one-size-fits-all message, and there is not a one-size-fits-all answer. I want [ lactation consultants ] to listen to each and every mother, our goal is not to make mothers feel guilty.

  3. Melissa Bartick:

    I think the study is helpful, but it doesn't definitely answer the question. The question is, how much, if any, alcohol is safe during lactation ? i would advise mothers to avoid alcohol and not to use alcohol, not to use beer to try to increase their milk supply. I think that's safe to advise.
