You saw a lactation consultant during rounds at the hospital.
Then you went home.
Now you have… So. Many. Questions.
Does this latch look right?
Maybe I need to pump...
Is it normal for baby to eat this often?? This long??
Should I consider supplementing?
How can I combine formula and breastmilk in feeding to get ready to go back to work?
