Online Lactation Consultants
“I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Doctor On Demand. I received a free trial coupon code to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
When I became a mom to each of my daughters, those were some of the best moments of my life. The love I felt for each girl was instant. You know, that “love at first sight” feeling? Little did I know, especially with my first daughter, motherhood could bring on a whole array of stresses right from the start. Like lactation, for example.
I knew I wanted to breastfeed both girls. So it’s just that easy, right? The baby comes out and knows what to do and it’s smooth sailing? Maybe for some, but it took me a few weeks to get the hang of it with both girls. With Charlotte (my first daughter), she latched quickly but I ended up getting horrible sores and scabs on my nipples because she wasn’t latching correctly. The lactation nurse in the hospital was a huge help in getting the latch corrected but only while we were there. Once we went home, though, we were on our own.
I was very worried that something was going to go wrong during the early stages of breastfeeding. I was told that I could call the lactation nurse at the hospital if I had any questions but I never ended up doing that. I googled a lot and found so many mixed methods and strange advice which left me confused. Little did I know, there were services like Doctor on Demand.
