Difficulty breastfeeding is very common. We have seen many mothers become distraught when they have difficulty breastfeeding, but this is nothing to be ashamed of. Every baby is different and not all of them will have an easy time figuring out how to latch. It is not a statement about you and your child; it’s just something you can both learn together. Sign up for our breastfeeding class for help from experienced lactation consultants.
The classroom is on the 1st floor of the hospital, in the Hall of History next to the cafeteria. For additional information please call 504.349.6200.
