The Baby Whisperer

So we had our lactation consult yesterday.  Doris is in her 60's a Grandmother and has 30 years experience as a lactation consultant.  Rosabella did her red devil baby routine, and she just swaddled her up and got her latched on my breast in no time at all.  We then switched sides and again no issues.  Like Rosabella knew this person was not going to take any silliness and she needed to get down to business.  After she left we had several more good feeds, until late last night when all the techniques were not working, maybe she was not hungry, but we couldn't tell.  Then a good feed at 6 am, but a bad one at 8:30 am.  Mark is rocking her right now.  Wow this is HARD.  Worth everything of course, but I feel like I am in way over my head.  We will keep trying and keep working to learn what she needs.


  1. It IS hard. But you CAN do it!

  2. It is hard. It will get better. And it is so ok to feel frustrated.
