I attended a lactation session during my stay at Cloud nine. I had to take my baby with me. The only problem was that it was held only one day after surgery so I was very tired to concentrate.
They told us the importance of breast feeding and how to breastfeed. I am one person who wanted to do everything perfectly and messed up the most.
I think it’s better to take it slow and let the baby do its part. Not be too conscious about the 1/3 breast latch etc etc.
The lactation consultant was very helpful in coming to my room to help me again. But the problem is that we don’t have recliner beds at home.
If such classes are provided by the hospital then fine but there is no need to go in search of one.
Sadly we don’t have many qualified lactation consultants here in India. Do contact La leche league leaders for support, you can see our page on Breastfeeding.
