As an experienced baby nurse, I have a keen ability of knowing when the baby is hungry so I assist the mom in the breastfeeding process by taking the baby to her for feedings. I also supervise the baby’s eating schedule, tweaking it as necessary. Additionally, I watch the mother while she breastfeeds, so I can make suggestions where needed. It is also my job to encourage the mother and to be her support system in times of feeling guilty, inept, doubtful, incompetent or fearful when it comes to her challenges with breastfeeding or providing sufficient milk for her baby. I do strongly advise new mothers who are experiencing problem with breastfeeding and latching issues to work alongside a Registered Lactation Consultant. I am also able to observe breastfeeding problems, assist with solutions, and help mothers follow the instructions of their Lactation Consultant.
