I need help encouraging my sister.
She just delivered a baby boy very late last night. She really wanted to BF, but she had a very tough delivery. After 36 hours & 3 epidurals, they needed to put her under & operate.
She & her lo are both healthy, though exhausted. She tried to nurse this morning, but lo was not a good latcher… She’s soooo exhausted & in a good deal of pain, and very discouraged. DH is great man but will do what ever the nurses say is best, which is let mom rest & give us the baby.
I am nursing my 10m old dd, I don’t want to seem like I’m coming down on her. But I want to help her through this tough time. How can I gently offer support with out sound like the bfing gastapo??? I know nursing after a c is more difficult; are there better positions I can show her??? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you,
