Do you know a lactation consultant in NYC that helped you where other LC's failed? If so, please send on her info -- I've seen 3 already and they haven't been able to solve my issue.
I'm in week 5 of breastfeeding purgatory. My daughter seems to be getting enough to eat, but I'm in a ton of pain when she nurses. I've seen 3 lactation consultants (including going to Realbirth's clinic), done a phone consult with LLL, and have had 2 craniosacral therapy appointments for my daughter, plus spoken with a ton of friends and done lots of reading. I'm at my wit's end.
No matter what I do, she latches on by clamping down her jaws. It works for her but is excruciating for me. I need to find a way of re-training her to latch differently
It's easy to find listings of LC's that I could call; but I'm looking for someone who is a really experienced problem solver -- I need to bring in the "big guns". Please share any recommendations you have!
