Schedule a Lactation Visit
Research studies suggest that anywhere from a quarter to two thirds of breast-feeding women face significant difficulties within the baby's first week. Top complaints include sore nipples, infant sucking problems, excessive infant weight loss (more than 10 percent of birth weight), and delayed onset of the mother's milk supply. Yet when researchers in a study at the University of California at Davis provided lactation consultants to every study subject who needed one, the overwhelming majority of participants' breast-feeding problems were resolved successfully.
