    Unhappy Which doctor do you go to?

    Which doctor do you go to if you have problems with your breast? Your OBGYN or your primary doctor??

    I'd go to my OB, no question.

    The Seven Standards of ecological breastfeeding: (1) exclusive breasfeeding for the first 6 months (2) pacify baby at your breast (3) don't use bottles and pacifiers (4) co-sleep for night feedings (5) take a nursing nap (6) nurse frequently day and night; avoiding schedules (7) avoid practices that restrict nursing or separates you from your baby. The average return of menstruation for ecological breastfeeding mothers is between 14 and 15 months.

    ITA, OB if it's a breast problem like a lump, or infection. If it's a breastfeeding problem, an ibclc. I had my my general practioner check out a "lump" which was swollen breast tissue when I just happened to be there, but if I had to schedule an appointment, I would have gone to the ob.

    Depends on what the problem is. For thrush and mastitis and staph, I went to my PCP. But that's because I "know" him so I knew he'd be most understanding of my situation.
    If you're having a breastfeeding problem, I'd see an IBCLC.

    My ob doesn't know much about breastfeeding.
    If I had a problem like a lump I don't think I would trust him to know anything about it and I would ask to see a specialist.
