Great article about breastfeeding - glad to see it's getting more attention in the medical community!
I unfortunately agree. I have a recurring blister and the LC said latch was fine and referred me to the OB who said it was the latch or the baby and said to see the LC or pedi.
This board, Kellymom, and other resources have been more helpful that the "professionals"
I saw this one on my twitter feed this morning. It's so true to my experiance. The only advice anyone ever gave me was to try harder. Even my own doctor, who I love, seemed surprised that I breastfed past a year. I just medical professionals were more knowledgable. I was never discouraged from doing it, but it was always "oh, you breastfeed. That's nice."
I'm glad that something so natural is getting more medical attention.
That is why when women say "but my dr says I have to supplement/wean to take meds/am not making enough milk" I take that with a grain of salt and try to get more info and other answers.
I wish that the bump conglomerate had not bought out breastfeeding.com and then killed it. That website was a huge tool for breastfeeding moms, up there with kellymom in its usefulness.
