10 Things Your Pediatrician Might Not Explain To You, Part 4

If your infant is having trouble nursing, you don’t necessarily need to switch to formula feeding.

Both moms and infants need to learn how to breastfeed. It can be challenging at times. Lactation counselors are highly trained, excellent advocates and can really make a big difference in the first few weeks. But sometimes that is not enough, and mom’s can often be devastated, exhausted and frustrated. Working with a Chiropractor or Cranial Sacral Therapist who is highly trained to work with infants can make a world of difference. You should also consult with a skilled practitioner about releasing a tongue and/or lip tie that could be interfering with proper breastfeeding.
