Nursing Mother's Story of the Month!
featuring:
Laura & baby Mari

2022.7.1 Maxfield.Laura_Mari.jpg

First week after birth

   Laura and daughter Mari have come a very long way in their 'breastfeeding journey'. When Laura contacted Sharon for Lactation help one week after Mari's birth, she struggled  with engorgement, a painful latch, cracked nipples and a very sleepy baby.

   Over the next 10 days, Laura worked through each of her challenges. In the following weeks she experienced an oversupply of milk, then also a dealt with a nursing strike!
   Again, receiving information & support from her Consultant Sharon, she was able to resolve all of her issues to continue a lovely nursing relationship with Mari.

   After finally getting past those 'bumps in the road' Laura established a comfortable routine & was able to regularly pump extra milk, achieving her goal of donating breast milk for the sick babies who need this precious gift. 
   Shown in this picture is her donation of 
179 oz  of her 'Liquid Gold' (breastmilk), collected to share with fragile babies thru the Mothers Milk Bank of North Texas.

   Three cheers for a nursing mother, who was dedicated to her own baby's needs, and who considered the well being of other mothers and babies!  Laura offers her appreciation for support provided by one of our excellent professional consultants at Natural Beginnings Lactation Services!

'Making Milk' is Laura's Super Power!
