Let me be clear, I am not a lactivist. As long as people feed their child adequately, I don’t care how the job gets done. Life is too complicated to insist that there is only one correct way to do something.
In my situation, breastfeeding did not work out. But, I know many women who have been helped by lactation consultants and were able to breastfeed.
My dear friend, Sally, has asked me to pass along this survey concerning lactation consultants. If you’ve ever breastfed (including if you ever pumped) and used a lactation consultant, please take a moment to complete the survey.
Now that the survey has been addressed, I have a question. I am curious. What were other NICU parents’ experiences like with pumping?
