\"This is another great reason to breastfeed,\" says Laura Wilwerding, MD, a lactation consultant and a clinical associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. \"Getting immunized is traumatic for infants, and anything that we can do to decrease side effects is great.\" There are other benefits from breastfeeding when it comes to immunizations, she says. \"Breastfeeding during the actual shot process decreases discomfort,\" she says. \"It may be that the sheer comfort of being with mom in such a natural way takes the infant\'s mind off of the pain of the shots.\" What\'s more, \"immunizations have been shown to work better in babies who are breastfed,\" she says.

Dr. Laura Wilwerding, an Omaha-area pediatrician, clinical associate professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and advocate of breast-feeding, said legislating such protections will go a long way toward increasing the rate of mothers who breast-feed.
Wilwerding has long encouraged the Nebraska Legislature to pass a basic breast-feeding rights bill. In 2009, such a bill didn't make it out of committee.
In advocating such a law, Wilwerding said, she has encountered no business opposition just a sense from some that "there will be breasts flailing everywhere ... (and) babies will be everywhere."

"It's very important that people realize they have a voice and that people will listen to that voice - and you don't have to have a lot of letters after your name," said Dr. Laura Wilwerding, MD, IBCLC, FAAP, FABM, a pediatrician in Plattsmouth, Nebraska USA, and a pediatrics professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, where she lectures on breastfeeding medicine, child advocacy, antibiotic overusage, and obesity prevention.
In addition to being a fellow of the International Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, Wilwerding is involved in the Nebraska chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics as the breastfeeding coordinator, the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition on the leadership team, and as a member of the Nebraska Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Prevention Advisory Board. Wilwerding spoke during the La Leche League of Nebraska Annual Breastfeeding and Parenting Conference in May 2011 in Omaha, Nebraska USA.
"Particularly locally, you do have power, and not just with elected officials but also hospital administrators and human services program directors," she said. It's all in your approach.
"You have to figure out a way to educate without preaching and to bring people to the table," Wilwerding said. And along the way, you need to work on building a network of supporters among different facets of society, so that those in charge of policy- and law-making are influenced by others who also support your agenda.
Wilwerding remembered when she first began talking to Nebraska lawmakers about changing public breastfeeding laws, 10 years ago. "At first, there were lawmakers in the room who would visibly cringe every time I said the word, 'breast.'" Finally, after several [legislative] sessions, there was a young woman lawmaker who stood up and said, 'All of my friends are breastfeeding, so obviously we need to support this,'" Wilwerding said.
