My cousin delivered a gorgeous baby girl yesterday and she weighed 5lbs 4oz and 18in at birth, full term. Today she weighs 4lbs 12oz. Anyways, the nurses at the hospital are telling her she needs to be giving her baby formula because of her daughters low birth weight and the nurses really won't help her with breastfeeding. There is just 1 nurse wanting to help her but when the nurse's shift is over the other nurses aren't wanting to help her. I don't know if it because they have no idea about breastfeeding or what their problems are. I feel so bad for her because she really wants to breastfeed and with the lack of support she's trying to figure it out on her own when the other nurse leaves for the day. I want to go help her but all 3 kids of mine are sick, so I don't want to spread the germs around the new baby. Is there anything she can do to get more support from the nurses? I told her when she gets home to call someone from LLL or go to the local WIC office there and a woman who works there specializes in breastfeeding. She will be leaving the hospital sometime tomorrow afternoon. I gave her the numbers to LLL around here. I have never liked the hospital where she delivered, the nurses aren't very friendly, have no clue what they are doing and hardly anyone goes to have their babies there.
