After having quite a few days feeding trouble with my 3 week old little girl and many sleepless nights, I was ready to throw in breastfeeding towel until I contacted the breastfeeding support ladies. Within 24 hours of contacting them and explaining out difficulties, a lovely member of the team was out at the house for a visit to observe a feed and immediately she told me our latch was all wrong and stayed with me during the remainder of the feed and helped correct our latch. Now 24 hours after the visit we have one happy full bellied baby and one very happy and rested mummy!
I honestly would no longer be breastfeeding if it weren't for the Lanarkshire Breast Support Team (Carluke area), all members of the team are an absolute credit to the NHS and I reckon if more areas had such a fantastic service like this one then I'm sure many more women would breastfeed!
