I facilitate a #supportgroup, open to all #nursing and #pumping parents. Parent to Parent support can be more powerful than time with your #IBCLC, especially once you've developed a strategy to attain your goals. Although it is an opportunity to check in on your baby's #weight, #milktransfer for a feeding, and have a #lactation professional available. I think the most profound benefit is time with other parents. Seeing #parents who are facing #challenges you have overcome, whilst seeing parents who have overcome whatever you are facing, can build your confidence in this journey.
This setting can serve as a bridge to #nursinginpublic. Feeding outside the home seems to be a daunting goal for some of my clients, especially if Baby needs a little extra help establishing a deep, comfortable latch. Here, everyone gets it.
