Re: Is BF at 7 wks possible?
I took nearly the same path. I had horrifically cracked nipples due to my daughter's awful latch, and even though I had the phone number of the local LC in hand- I mean, I didn't even need to go to the Yellow Pages, I had the number written down on a piece of paper in my wallet- I was determined to do it on. my. own. No help. No ma'am, not me. It was only when I took my daughter to the pediatrician at 2 weeks of age and discovered that she was only 1 oz over her birthweight despite near-constant nursing that I broke down and made the call. Going to see the LC 3 times, and then getting a 4th consult with another LC, was the best decision I could have made. The LCs made it possible for me to nurse my first baby, and gave me a shoulder to cry on when I badly needed it, even though I didn't yet realize that I needed it.
