Prolactin







Prolactin and Oxytocin are the two well know hormones of lactation. Oxytocin is responsible for squeezing the milk out of the breast, Prolactin is responsible for milk production if the breast is well emptied regularly. Understanding the concept of milk production helps to understand why it is important to breastfeed on demand, stimulate the breast, and keep some feeding overnight. #IBCLC #breastfeedingondemand #Lactation#lactationconsultant#postpartum#breastfeedingchallenges#breastfeedinglatch#postpartumhealth#newmama#nursingmom#lactationsupport#normalizedbreastfeeding#breastfeedingjourney#breastfeedingmama
