When I had my first baby, Arya, everything was so new and I was fumbling through all of it. We were struggling with jaundice, and poor latch, and slow weight gain (after a pound of weight loss). I would feed Arya for an hour and she would fall asleep or cry. I saw two doctors and a lactation specialist, all telling me that the latch was great. I finally found someone who told me about tongue ties, and this is when I met Suzanne. She was so patient and took the time to sit with me, sometimes while I was crying, and offer all the support and information I needed (as well as hugs). She helped me with feedings, and triple feedings, and pumping tips (my baby made me work hard). I was able to pump for a full year for Arya.
Then, along comes baby two, and I just know it’s going to be work again, but this time I was prepared. Within five days Dakota has her tongue clipped, and by her second week I was working with Suzanne. Seven months in and I am still exclusively breastfeeding baby number two. She has made all the difference for me in my journey with my babies. I only wish I had had her with me from day one with Arya.
