La Boob

So there's a breastfeeding guru in town. Risa and Naomi refer to her in the comments of my last post, and she also comes highly recommended by my Doula.

Today I found myself on the brink of giving up. Desperate and crying, I called Lactation Linda. It turns out she lives two blocks away from my house and she was here in 20 minutes. The bad news is I have thrush. The good news is that I survived our first mommy-baby outing to the doctor's (accompanied by my mother-in-law cuz I'm not THAT crazy) and now have some powerful creams that should help. That, and I now have a new approach to The Boob.

It remains to be seen if Linda is the miracle worker they all say she is, but let's just say that I just had a feeding that did not result in me kicking over the coffee table. I'll keep you posted.

Linda's last name is perfect for the line of work she's in, if it's the same Linda we saw (and I think it must be).
