  If we don't have the information we need to do our job well.  If we don't have the help we need to learn a new skill,  we are likely going to have many ups and downs until we learn, or someone shows us, or until we figure it out on our own. Thankfully, for many of us, there are allowances for making mistakes while we are learning as it is not a matter of life or death.  We have time to figure things out.  At the same time, when learning a new skill, we often have these AHA moments, in which we say to ourselves - Boy, that would have been nice to know.

We had a great discussion as we talk about Debra's breastfeeding experiences with her 2 babies. She also practiced mother led weaning where she decided when she wanted to be done breastfeeding rather than a baby led weaning where babies stop breastfeeding when they are ready.  This prompted an interesting conversation about how lactation consultants can have their own breastfeeding and weaning experience and at the same time work hard to meet parents where they are at.

How does Pam go about helping moms initiate breastfeeding?
 
She really likes the baby to come right onto the moms chest for skin to skin.  She likes to stay hands off initially and just allow the mom and baby to be together.  She does offer some verbal support as the mom relaxes and enjoys her baby and offer the breast. She likes to help moms be relaxed.  Pam wants to see the babies breastfeeding within the first 2-4 hours after birth.  She keeps a close eye on things for the first 24 hours as she knows how important this window of time is to ensure that babies begin breastfeeding well. 
 
Pam feels she is really good with early breastfeeding and the basics.   However, if a mom and baby is struggling, she is happy to refer a mom to an IBCLC. I have worked closely with some of Pams clients and I enjoy our working relationship.  Pam knows how to tell when babies are breastfeeding well and when it is not going well and is the first person to refer to an IBCLC when moms need help.

Today I wanted to share a story of a mom that I worked with recently.  She had a traumatic birth and did not breastfeed her baby immediately.  She was told that he could not wait, needed to have some nourishment as they were concerned about his blood sugar levels.  She had no problem agreeing to give him formula. Here is where I am going to pick up her story and I think it is an important one and you will find out why as we go along.
 
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of providing a home visit for a mom who lives in a suburb of Phoenix.  I will call her Samantha and tell you that she is 36 year old woman who had her first baby boy after suffering through 3 miscarriages.  Her Husband, Andy met me at the door and had a water bottle in his hand saying to me that I must be thirsty!  I really appreciated his thoughtfulness as the Phoenix temperatures have been hovering between 111 and 114 for the past few days.  I usually bring plenty of water with me, but I was running low, so thanked Andy and came on in.
