WHY EXCLUSIVE PUMPERS BELIEVE THE LAEP FRAMEWORK IS NEEDED FOR LACTATION CONSULTANTS
Kayla, EPI Lactation Attitude Reassessment Contributor
Nursed 1st child, EPed 2nd child
More research is needed. Thank you Exclusive Pumping Institute for doing this!
Julie, EPI Lactation Attitude Reassessment Contributor
EPed all 4 children
This is not what I imagined. I always wanted to nurse my kids. I believe breastmilk is better [...] much better than formula.
Jess, EPI Lactation Attitude Reassessment Contributor
EPed 1st child
To the Lactation Consultants, when a woman decides pumping is what she's going to do, there's no "well do you want to try to latch?" There's no more talk about it.
