Realistic Nursing Ad Aired on 2021 Golden Globes

The Frida ad showed how incredibly difficult to nurse — especially today when most women have never seen anyone do it and they are working from pictures. They have no idea what is normal. The most realistic thing I was told was by my sister who said your nipples feel like ground glass. Moms I see are dressed in their robe afraid to nurse because it hurts so much and they haven’t slept in days. Husbands want to help but there is so little they can do — bring a glass of water?

Today’s mom has usually been working before having her first baby. At work, like most of life, there are realistic guidelines and if you follow them and try hard you will pretty much succeed. Babies have not read the rules and it can be an incredible shock when you are working as hard as you can and your little “customer” is crying and unhappy.

One of the most important things I tell new moms is that it’s normal–cluster feedings, painful breasts and nipples, sleeping babies, and too much or too little milk. However, there are strategies to help with all of these things. That’s what I do and and I can help make nursing better. It does get better and it can be made better faster. Call 203.536.6002

Nurse Practitioner, Lactation Consultant

 I am a nurse practitioner, lactation consultant and mother of four who has worked with nursing moms for the past fifteen years. I make home visits to new mothers who are having problems with latch on, engorgement, sore nipples, plugged ducts, mastitis, low (or high) milk supply. I can also help with a sleepy baby, fussy/colicky baby, baby with slow weight gain or problems with overly frequent, prolonged feedings. Lactation consultant visits are covered by the same insurance that covers your prenatal care. Prescription medications may be ordered as needed.
