Dr. Jack Newman & Ms. Edith KernermanJack and Edith are more than happy to help you with your breastfeeding concern.
Due to the extremely high number of emails they get daily, they ask that you refer to the video clips and handouts on this website to help you address your concerns first. Almost every problem is addressed in these handouts (under Breastfeeding Help) and video clips.
If the clips are not enough, then we do have a DVD you can order and which ships very quickly. If you truly are at a loss and still need help, then please send a very very brief email with the age and weight of your baby. Please indicate the problem you are having in one or two sentences. Your whole or past history is not necessary.
Please do not send a long email. Long emails will not be read. If Jack and Edith need more information they will email you. Thank you for your understanding.
Please include all the following information in your email.
We need some very specific information from you in order to help you:
Note that we cannot answer questions not related to breastfeeding as the numbers of emails is becoming overwhelming.
Your breastfeeding child’s age
If you or your baby have been seen at the clinic and when.
Where you live (province or state, country)
Please state the problem you want us to address clearly in the first line of the text. Then add information, briefly, afterwards.
How your baby is being fed: breast, bottle, cup, finger feeding, lactation aid at the breast or a combination of the above.
If you are sore, whether the soreness involves the nipple, the breast, or both.
If you have a concern about the baby’s weight, we need to know more than his present weight. It means nothing to know that your 4 month old weighs 5 kg (11 lb). If he was born at 2.5 kg (5lb 8oz), this is probably fine. If he was born at 4 kg (8lb 12 oz), then it probably isn’t fine. One or two weights in between would also be very helpful.
Send Jack and Edith an email now, right here!
