SICKNESS BLOG SERIES: #1 Fevers and Respiratory Infections
We’ve all been there. It’s 3am and we hear it. A cough. Throwing up. A cry that just doesn’t sound right. One of my jobs as a pediatric nurse is phone triage. Parents want to know how to treat their child at home, or when it’s a more serious problem that should be addressed by a physician. This blog series is not meant to be medical advice and if you have concerns about your child, you should call their doctor or seek emergency care. But I’ll go over some basic symptoms you might encounter in your baby’s first year, and how to protect your breastfeeding relationship while you work through them.
Hey! I’m Allison, one of the Lactation Experts with Successful Breastfeeding! I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and have over seven years of experience as a pediatric nurse working one on one with mothers and babies. My most important credential is being “Mama” to two little ones. I am so happy to be part of the Successful Breastfeeding team; to be able to offer support in a more relaxed setting! I can help you meet your breastfeeding goals no matter where you are - virtual sessions for convenient, accessible help no matter where you live. Breastfeeding is a relationship between you and your baby, and it’s my job to support it, whatever your goals and needs happen to be.
