...my second daughter ... wasn’t able to figure it out...When I explained the situation, [Christy] knew exactly what the problem was...

The first couple of days her baby wouldn’t latch on…If it wasn’t for Christy, I know she would have given up breastfeeding.

He was born and went straight to the NICU.... There is no doubt in my mind that without Christy our son would not have breastfed.

Mike, New Father   

The nurse told me if I didn’t give him formula his blood sugar levels would continue to go down... So, I called Christy.

Christy’s Best Breastfeeding Advice for New Mothers

The first few days after birth is a time for mother and baby to learn the dance of breastfeeding together. Insist on a deep, painless latch from day one. Gently reposition or relatch your baby as many times as you need to get it right. Try different breastfeeding positions. If you are concerned about the latch, get skilled help as soon as possible. Don’t ignore nipple pain and hope it will just go away on its own. The most loving thing you can do for your baby is protect the breastfeeding relationship by making sure things get off to a good start.
