    Default Who Is Dr Newman?

    I go to breastfeeding / wellness baby clinics and the last one we went to with the baby...the nurse kept talking about some Dr Newman in Toronto. She was giving me information about increasing my milk supply by using both a herbal remedy or also a medication that I can get my MD to prescribe. She gave me these handouts with information about both options in case I was interested and kept trying to push this Dr Newman stuff. All I know is this guy is in Toronto. Is he really a Doctor? If so, what type of Doctor is he?
    The way she was pushing makes me feel kind of skeptical about all this. Who is this guy? Why have I never heard about him until now? Why did the nurse tell me to ask my MD about getting the prescription and then inform me to push my MD to write the prescription for me and if my MD had any questions about it to call Dr Newman???

    He is a real doctor. I can't remember if he is a family doctor or a paediatrician. he is one of the foremost breastfeeding expert doctors in North America.

    He is absolutely amazing, has a fantastic website with videos, and runs an amazing breastfeeding clinic.

    He is a leading breastfeeding expert and is a real doctor. When I had problems with my breastmilk supply, my family Dr. prescribed me a medication based on Dr. Newman's recommendation.

    I also used Dr. Newman's prescription cream on my nipples when I was having latch problems and lots of pain, and it helped immensely.

    He's real. Did a breastfeeding/lactation consultant training course last year at Vesta in St. Thomas.

    He sent me a script for domperidone when my Dr refused to give me one. (She said it wouldn't work, but there are people on this board whom it worked for overnight).

    His books are good too. They're my standard baby shower gift now.
