My friend gave birth via induction and emergency c-section at 39 wks on Tuesday. During her pregnancy she expressed a wish to breastfeed and asked for advice and resources. I told her about this forum and several other sites I regularly visit. Today I came home to this message on my facebook.
"So unfortunately I am no longer breast feeding. We were doing great and then it was like everyday got worse. She came out sucking her fist so she is a good latcher. Then she wouldn't feed without dozing off it got so bad to where she wasn't even getting dirty diapers "
I told her to start pumping and feeding expressed milk after each attempt at feeding from the breast. If anyone can recommend a good SNS that would be great as i have no experience with them myself. Also if you have any other advice I could pass along it would be greatly appreciated. I really dislike seeing this new mama give up this quickly. I am assuming that her doctors are pressuring her.
