    Hi, can you find an IBCLC lactation consultant for face-to-face help? Babies can fuss at the breast for many reasons e.g. it could be frustration at slow flow of milk/low milk supply. A breastfeeding specialist will be able to go through a full medical history, look at your baby’s weight chart, check baby’s latch and positioning, help with suggestions to increase your milk supply if it is low and put a plan in place to help you. Until you can get help there are some articles on our website that may be helpful.
