The right person, with the right advice, at the right time

Posted on April 13, 2019 at 9:52 PM
One of the most consistent experiences a new mother usually has is the sheer inconsistency of advice offered about breastfeeding. Sometimes the difference is because the advice when a baby is a week old is going to be different from when the same baby was only a day or two old when the milk wasn't 'in' and your baby's stomach was smaller. The baby and his needs have changed. Other differences in advice may be because some of the comments offered are just a personal opinion or the person has not kept up to date or is feeling very rushed.

Helpful advice and support for getting breastfeeding established, and continuing it, often depends on getting 'the right advice, from the right person, at the right time'. For me, this was advice by airmail letter from the wonderful Marian Tompson in Chicago, when I was living in a remote area of north-west Queensland, the other side of the world. Bless Marian. She has helped so many mothers.

I'd love to hear from YOU about who helped you with the right advice at the right time. Perhaps you found this crucial advice early on, or perhaps you struggled to find the information and support you needed - until the right person came along or you made contact electronically. So - over to you....
