    Firstly I want to say THANKYOU MARGERLE !!!!!!
    You are the Breastfeeding Guru of BnB !!! :hug: :hug: :hug:

    I posted about how I was giving BF one last attempt after really struggling to get Mia latched on properly... There was this link http://newborns.stanford.edu/Breastf...uteHelper.html , suggested by Margerle, about latching technique, and it is so far from what I was trying, (which is the way I think everybody is taught). I keep calling it the sandwich now :lol:

    WE ARE BREASTFEEDING SUCCESSFULLY !!!!!!!! :wohoo:

    I'm not going to aim for BF exclusively.. as my lifestyle doesn't suit, what with the 2 boys.. at different schools.. and housework.. blah blah blah... But when it's quiet and we have our quality time, I put her to the breast. :cloud9:

    I'm really chuffed !!! :D

    Can't open the page...it gets to the Stanford pages and says "file not found". Is this available anywhere else? Would love to see it, as we're having some latching probs, too.

    No worries :)
    That website is fantastic! It reinforced everything that both my mum and another lactation consultant taught me.
