I did something neat....<br><br>
a new mom that is a client of my midwife is having a heckova time with weak latching babe / keeping her supply up, and I volunteered my freezer stash when the midwife called me to find out what herbs i'd used for my supply issues. The new mom called the next day, we chatted, and i ended up going over with a LOT (i'd guess around 120oz) of ebm and some herbs and hung out for a couple of hours. We tried to get her dd to latch onto me, and the baby's tongue was all over the place, and she just wouldn't latch. At any rate, long story short, I suggested an SNS, she ordered it, had it overnighted, and is thrilled. Evidently the LC she saw didn't even bring up the option of the SNS, so she was thrilled I suggested it. She was also thrilled to be able to supplement w/ebm instead of formula while she works on getting her supply back.<br><br>
It was neat to be able to help and i just wanted to share....

That's awesome! I bet it gave her a HUGE boost in confidence as well to see absolute proof that it wasn't HER fault her baby wasn't nursing well. KWIM?
