Today Kimberly is telling us about how Babywise does NOT automatically diminish milk supply.
Kimberly has successfully breastfed and Babywised three kiddos, including twins, and her supply has not been diminished because of scheduling. She acknowledges that Babywise isn’t for everyone, but emphasizes that if you do choose Babywise, it won’t cause your milk supply to decrease.
“Scheduling nursing sessions let me make sure everyone’s needs are met, including nursing enough to maintain milk supply. Babywise isn’t for everyone, and that is just fine. There isn’t one right way to parent. But know that babywise in itself does not make milk dry up. I am proof of that.”
