So my daughter gets sicker and she stops nursing. So I take her back to the hospital on Saturday. I tell the staff and new doctor that she refuses to nurse (by that point she was vomiting every 15 minutes). So Maggie ends up getting admitted to the hospital. So the next morning I get a visit from a lady who says she was told I was still breast feeding my 3 year old daughter. My heart just sanked just what I need right now, I am exhausted and my daughter is incredible ill, in isolation but I will take on this battle so I admit my daughter is breast feeding (with the tone of what do you care?). The next breathe the woman goes "Hi, I am Nancy from lactation specialist. I am here to help you through this nursing strike". WOW I was shocked. She said everyone in the hospital thought it was great that I am still nursing my 3 year old.
I'm glad to see it's different!

That is so awesome I almost started bawling. Darned pregnancy hormones.
BUT, I'm so sorry to hear Maggie is so sick. I hope she is all better very soon!
