  1. Re: Scared new mother needs some reassurance...

    I am so glad you replied, I was assuming because it was painful that the latch was wrong and therefore she wasn't getting enough, it's nice to know that although it hurts me, she is still getting...
  2. Re: Scared new mother needs some reassurance...

    I saw an LC today! She tried to help me get latched a few times and failed. She said that I am large breasted and the LO has a small mouth right now she just can't fit much in her mouth which is...

    Thank you so much for your reply, I feel much better! According to my husband I will be contacted by a WIC Lactation Consultant tomorrow, fingers crossed!

    Re: Giving Up

    I have felt ready to give up on BF since my LO came home with me, for different reasons than yours but reasons all the same. I am so glad I haven't given up. It's still hard and I cry a lot over it,...
  10. Re: Scared new mother needs some reassurance...

    Thank you so much for the reply! I feel so much better knowing that she is still getting what she needs. I would love to stop using the shield but without it, there is no latch and then there is no...

    Hello all!

    My little one is 4 days old. Born at 37 weeks due to Cholestasis. Induction went well and the doctors say she is doing great.
