They should have a more highly qualified lactation consultant to refer to. The baby cafe I volunteer at has a super mw who supervises all the peer supporters
Good luck, how the change in' position helps. Have you tried biological nursing. I found out excellent when the latch got a bit iffy. Just recline or lie back, drape baby over you however is comfy and let them figure it out for themself!
Yes, he is a chubby little man and plenty of poos etc. no worries about weight, etc. I have a baby cafe round the corner, might go along, but quality of advice depends on experience, and suspect I might be the most experienced breastfeeder there sometimes!
I should add he feeds fine from both boobs at night (two feeds at 1ish and 4.30ish mostly, though sometimes we manage just one), so it mystifies me that the day feeds can be such a drama. Sometimes they are fine, and sometimes my DH and two year old look on a bit appalled at all the crying.
Im breastfeeding my second DS (found it tough first time round, this time generally easier), however I have been having problems on and off with him fussing, crying, pulling off on my left boob, which I feed first as it is my "bad boob" and seems to produce less.
I think he is hungry, he will still do this when he hasn't fed for a few hours, and will generally feed better from the othe boob, though sometimes just goes into meltdown completely. He also feeds pretty quickly now, so I sometimes wonder if he is finished, but there seemed to be milk dripping from my boob still, so suspect it's not empty.
Have been wondering about strong letdown, ear infection, maybe not hungry enough, reflux (he spits up a lot). Any other ideas? He is generally a good baby, sleeps well, good weight, but has been a bit more fussy over the last few weeks.
