Christa and Robert’s Story
Christa and Robert both love technology and use it to help manage their lives so they acquired a subscription for Baby Insights before their baby arrived. They started using it about 5 days after Erika was born because Christa was having challenges with breastfeeding. She was experiencing unbearable pain so she began feeding Erika only on one side and pumping the other.
After a meeting with her lactation consultant and pediatrician, Christa discovered the reason for her pain was that Erika was severely tongue-tied. When she discovered this, she quit breastfeeding and went exclusively to pumping until it could be corrected. She used Baby Insights to keep track of her pumping and Erika’s bottle-feeding activities to make sure she pumped enough milk for Erika.
When Erika was 9 days old, she went in for surgery and within hours afterwards Christa was back to breastfeeding. Since her milk supply had decreased while she was exclusively pumping, it was imperative for her and Robert to make sure she was keeping up with Erika’s needs by pumping and breastfeeding regularly. Baby Insights helped them keep up with all of the activities.
Before meeting with her lactation consultant, Christa would print out breastfeeding and pumping reports as well as bottle-feeding reports from Baby Insights. She and her lactation consultant reviewed the reports together and looked for patterns related to pumping, amounts, and how much Erika was taking from a bottle. In late August 2007, Christa started the transition back to work (part-time) and will continue to use Baby Insights to keep track of her feeding and pumping. She already has a computer set up at home for her nanny to use Baby Insights. Christa or Robert can log in from work and see how little Erika is doing at home.
