On Facebook today, a friend's sister posted on The Leaky B@@b's page and it showed up on my feed. My friend had her baby on Saturday via emergency C section and is having trouble breastfeeding because the little guy won't latch, he's too busy catching zzz's! Her sister mentioned that this is normal, which doesn't surprise me, sounds like a very common problem, and another friend only lasted two days bfing because of the same issue.
What I can't BELIEVE is that the nurses are being rude and impatient, and pushing formula! No wonder people give up so quickly!
Did I mention this is the same hospital I will be delivering at in December? I'm even more anxious about breastfeeding now. Hopefully (fx) I don't have the same experience, but I will be sure to have experienced friends and a lac consultant on speed dial.
Has this happened to anyone else? Did you push through or switch to formula?
