‘The most natural thing in the world’ they said. ‘The baby just crawls up your chest and latches on’ they said. Well, it’s not all that simple and every baby, birth and situation is different. For us, there is no ‘should’ and a fed baby is the most important thing. We do though think getting the right support with breastfeeding is crucial to success.
It can be painful, frustrating, make your toes curl and your eyes water BUT if someone experienced is by your side, helping you get that latch right, helping you to understand when baby is hungry, how to increase your milk supply and trouble shoot any problems, it can be the most amazing experience for you and baby.
All the lactation consultants you’ll find that partner with The Nest Club are IBCLC trained which is the gold standard with specialist knowledge that is completely evidence based.
We know that being comfortable and not feeling pressured can be key to establishing a positive breastfeeding journey, which is why we work with people that believe that ‘your way is the best way’.
