    Pro breastfeeding paediatrician

    I need to find a pro-breastfeeding paediatrician for a second opinion. They need to be someone who doesn't just pay lip service to breastfeeding and is fully aware of how breastfed babies develop.

    Dr Tanpa Thondup is extremely pro-breastfeeding, from my experience with him. He works with Yvonne Heavyside at his clinic and will write referral letters for extra lactation consultations with her. His details are in the geobaby directory.

    Thanks guys. He sounds great. I know he's supportive of breastfeeding from your responses, I need to know that he is also knowledgeable about breastfed babies. I know this sounds picky, but I need a paediatrician to debunk a few things that were said to my husband and I about our little man. I know what was said was based on breastfeeding myths, but I'm having a bit of a trial convincing my husband of this, so I need a second opinion. Thanks.

    why don't you ask one of the la leche league leaders, they will know a lot more about breastfed babies & their knowledge are study based, so you'll be able to convince your husband with real datas.

    Thanks joannek. As a LLL member, they were my first port of call. However, my husband, bless him, has got it into his head that he needs back up provided by a medical professional. I have tried explaining that LLL is backed up by medical professionals and that they have been advising on breastfeeding for over fifty years, that LLL is the go to organisation for others who want information on breastfeeding and that the advice we received from the previous paediatrician contradicted everything that both the leaders and myself know about breastfeeding, but... he wants a medical professionals opinion. Therefore I need to find one who is going to back me up.
