Tea and Breastfeeding?


Today I brought the Traveling Teapot to one of my classes I teach through Kaiser Health Education.  I retired few years ago from direct nursing care, but have continued my practice through teaching, which I love.  I teach new parents and young kids; the classes range from Newborn Care and Breastfeeding to Feeding your Baby, Toddler Support, and even Puberty classes.  I’m stepping up the classes I teach this year.

I thought the Teapot would be an excellent prop in the Breastfeeding class.  Here it is on the display table with books, hand pumps, bottles and Mother’s Milk tea, a blend of herbs for promoting breastmilk production.  (Sorry the picture is dark)

Fantastic! The teapot really is an ambassador that fits in with many venues! Very special that it was able to assist you in your role, Colleen.

And drinking a nice non-caffeinated tea from that teapot while nursing would be just the right combination.

I applaud you and the busy Traveling Teapot for your efforts in educating mothers about the benefits of breast feeding.
