Parental Support

Helping You Adjust to Parenthood

From help transitioning into parenthood, handling postpartum recovery, to ensuring healthy sleep habits, we've gathered some resources to help you adjust to life with your new little one.

Breastfeeding

Foxhall Pediatrics encourages breastfeeding infants for the first 6-12 months of life as an excellent and readily available source of nutrition and parent child bonding.  Many factors impact the establishment and continuation of breast feeding and we want to support families at every step of the process.

While many medications are considered safe for use while breastfeeding, others may affect the infant, the mother’s milk supply or interact with current medications.  Always check with your prescribing physician or pediatrician when you have questions about taking a medication while breastfeeding.
