What was the most valuable thing you learned during your lactation consultation?
How to feed my baby when he wouldn’t latch! Syringe, then nipple shield. He eats great now!
What did you like best about your lactation consultation?
Being told “I have no doubt your baby will breastfeed”. Without reassurance I don’t know if I would be breastfeeding now.
What challenges or difficulties did you and your baby have with breastfeeding? How did the lactation consultant help you to achieve your breastfeeding goals?
He wouldn’t latch, so I got help supplementing without having to use a bottle, help with pumping, and then learning how to get him to latch. I had a lot of questions that were all answered in person or through messages during the month afterward.
