Hi Everyone,

My cousin just gave birth naturally to a beautiful baby girl. She is awesome!

She is having some latch issues. She has seen 2 lactation consultants. I just want to throw this out there in case anyone has a great recommendation for a lactation consultant or breastfeeding support resources.

Baby is a little jaundiced and not overly interested in nursing. Mom is very committed to breastfeeding.

Thank you!

Jenna in love with my DH Jon, loving our 2.5 year old, Caroline Tulip, and expecting another little one in August!

Has she been to the LLL of Fairfax? They have a blog - http://lllfairfaxcity.blogspot.com/ - with meeting info and phone numbers for advice

Hope she can find some help!

It's worth a drive into the city to the Breastfeeding Center on K St. http://www.breastfeedingcenter.org/ Pat Shelley is awesome and can solve anything!! They offer great free classes, too (but make sure to get there early b/c the office is small and they are popular!). There is a parking garage right next door to the bldg. the center is in.
