    Re: It's not the same!

    Maybe a day of skin time? A bit of one on one eye contact? Easier said than done I suspect. Go down to basics and I'm sure you'll work it out. Good luck!
  5. Re: Latch issues solved but now we have bad wind??

    Did this start at the same time as the medication? I don't know how these things work but maybe it's affecting the flow of liquid and gas in the stomach which would give wind that won't shift? Just a...

    Re: Seriously discouraged.

    Well done! You will get there. It's really good that you're asking for help and that with all the issues you've faced you are still working at it. Are there any breastfeeding support groups locally?...

    Re: Bloody/Green Stools- HELP!!
