Very satisfying to see this little man who is thriving g on breast feeding despite losing more than 10% of his birthweight and mums very sore nipples in the first week.
I have supported mum for 6 weeks at home and clinic and she now feeds comfortably and obviously VERY successfully!! 2 kg over his discharge weight at 6 weeks.
What did we need to do ?
Trust mothers instinct and stay CALM
The oxytocin release isn’t going to work when mum is stressed or sore
Happy to provide this support to Adelaide families
