Why I called a lactation consultant
I called a lactation consultant because my baby wasn’t gaining weight at a healthy rate with my breastfeeding. My goal was to breastfeed and the doctors were pushing me to formula feed. I was scared to add formula/bottles without the help of an expert. I knew Mimi would be the perfect fit. With Mimi’s expertise, we were able to determine that I had a low milk supply.
What I got from my visit with LEIF
Mimi made me feel so comfortable with my breastfeeding journey and was extremely supportive. She helped to ease what can be an overwhelming process. She was also extremely available, with continual home visits, phone calls and responding to my never ending texts.
Mimi suggested the SNS. I thought what the heck is that?! Supplemental Nursing System. I had no idea, but truly felt like I’d try anything Mimi suggested.
Where my breastfeeding journey led us
Thanks to the SNS, and Mimi, I was able to continue breastfeeding while being sure my baby was receiving the proper nutrition. I loved breastfeeding my baby and am so happy that I received Mimi’s support. Without her, I wouldn’t have been able to meet my own goals.
