If you’re breastfeeding while going through a divorce or co-parenting legal agreements, you’re not alone. The number of custody cases involving breastfeeding has increased, especially related to joint custody and co-parenting schedules. As a registered nurse and internationally board certified lactation consultant, I provide expert witness testimony for such cases.

Research supports the importance of breastfeeding that goes beyond the mother-baby bond and nutritional needs. Additional benefits include:

  • Antibodies and other factors that protect children from infections, promote brain development and improve the digestive system
  • Lower medical costs as breastfed babies require fewer doctor visits
  • Lower risk of SIDS, allergies and asthma, childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions
