yes, but thanks for responding anyway...
i worked with her last night, and her latch was beautiful. the prev night she was a bit tender, but better withing a few sucks when the nipple was drawn back on the infants palate.
as far as mama's skin, there was no breakdown, just this terrible pink puffy skin. areola and nips, both breasts.
i remember her saying that it hurt terribly to nurse her son, and that she still did for about 6mos before her supply dried up r/t returning to work and pumping.
so we discussed things to make bf'ing more comfy, and also what to do if she starting dropping supply, etc, etc. the typical stuff i go through with all my bf'ing moms.
gosh, I wish that i had the time right now to get my ibclc. i wanna do this full time.
i plan to call the hosp later and talk to the lc, to see what her thoughts are. she is a friend, and i love to pick her brain.
