My guest is Lauren, a wife and mom of two little girls, Elliana who is 2 ½ and Charlotte who is 7 months old. She is also a social worker who works with adults with developmental disabilities and is trying to balance it all, just like everyone else.
We discuss painful nursing in the beginning, the barriers to meeting with a lactation consultant (emotional, mental, and logistics), finding out two years later that baby has a lip tie, comparing baby 2 to baby 1 and the guilt that comes with that, the amazing Haakaa (with lid!), dwindling supply, and more.
Information on Lip Tie, Tongue Tie & Revision from the International Breastfeeding Center
