Jackie came to see us when I was experiencing some supply issues making for a very unhappy mum and baby.
I’d already successfully breastfed two babies so thought I knew everything and was close to giving up trying. But, Jackie came and went through breast compressions and other great tips to keep us going! That was when George was just under 4 months and now he’s over 8 months!
Whilst watching me feed Jackie noticed I looked particularly sore. I explained I had been treated for thrush since George was less than a week old. Jackie asked me a few questions then suggested I try not wearing breast pads and see if things improved. 2 days later, after 4 months of agony, I was completely clear and Jackie was right, I was allergic to the pads and this had been missed by other professionals since George was born.
I only wish I had seen Jackie sooner, she made it so our breastfeeding journey was enjoyable instead of the struggle it previously had been. Thank you!
