Finding Help
If baby is sick, we take her to a doctor.  Strangely, if breastfeeding isn’t right, we aren’t as inclined to get help.  Go to a breastfeeding counselor or lactation consultant.  Most breastfeeding problems are fixable with perseverance and good help.  So don’t quit, go to a specialist and get support.  Much cheaper and healthier than formula!  These links will assist you in finding good help:
La Leche League
Online BF Help Form
Index of LLL Groups
International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) -can refer you to a board-certified LC, or you can search for one on the website.
