    Good luck!

    Hi BlotchedTabby, yes I believe that Baby-Led Breastfeeding is the same thing. It is so great to hear that by 5.5 weeks you have your latch issues sorted. Make me so determined this time around... Thanks for sharing.

    1st time I was a private patient, stayed 5 nights and the midwives provided heaps of support when I had latching problems, they told me to buzz them for every feed and they would help.

    2nd time I went public. Same hospital just the public ward. Stayed 3 nights on ward and Despite me previously stating at ante natal check ups that I had trouble bf'ing first time round, not once did I get any help with feeding. Not even a "how are you going." I couldn't wait to get out.
    Hi VicPark,

    I am going private this time (I was meant to be going to the birth centre last time, but due to so many things going wrong I ended up with an emergency c-section in the public hospital)

    I am hoping that the level of support in the private system will be better.

    I got yelled at within the first 24 hours by a lactation consultant as apparently my DS had been given formula, which I didn't know about (she yelled at me and said well you signed the form.... I was like what form? I haven't signed anything....anyway I told her where to go!

    I have heard very good things about the private hospital I am going to and my Ob said there are Specialist Lactation Consultants as well. I am thinking the 5 night might be the better option to focus on getting feeding established.

    Can't believe you got treated so badly, no wonder you wanted to get out of there. I know it doesn't make it any better but imagine if that was a first time mum....

    I stayed in 4 nights after both of mine. It was long enough to see that I had supply issues and 2nd time around I got onto motilim early on, which has been a huge help.

    The first time I only stayed 4 nights as I wanted to get out as it was Christmas Day. The second time I wanted to get out sooner again because MIL was coming to stay later that week and I wanted a few special days at home just my little family and our new addition. Really I should have stayed until they kicked me out - I love the room service!

You get their magazine subscription, and when you first joint you get a very informative book that covers loads of common breastfeeding issues, like baby lead attachment, inverted nipples, how to get past a rough start at breastfeeding. They run classes for pregnant women. You also get loads of shopping discounts, we save quite a bit of money with them (I'd say more than the cost of the membership in a year). They have a great website too https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/ Even when breastfeeding is going well, it can still have challenges, and I found it really helpful to know a group of women who are supportive and overcoming their own challenges.
    Hi Lissa23,

    Thanks for following up with this information. It certainly sounds like it is worth the money then.

    I would be interested in attending the classes too. Thanks heaps 😀

    Hi Stretched,

    I think I stayed 4 nights last time. I had tried the Motilim too but it didn't seem to help me too much even at the highest dose. I will see if I can get a script for it ready to go as it was about 2 weeks after the birth that I started on it. I also tried the fenugreek (oh my goodness does it make anyone else stink? My sweat just reeked, similar to someone eating too much garlic and it coming out of your pores. I couldn't stand the smell of it)

    I can understand you wanting to get out for Christmas Day.

    I have read that the hospital I am going to has a buffet so hopefully it is ok.

    Last time I had another lady in the room who was in hospital still pregnant with twins for bleeding. She snored all night or cried out in pain, showers at all hours as well as watching tv all hours. She would be vomiting in the shower too. I called a midwife to come check on her ya one point. Felt very sorry for her poor thing. I didn't get much sleep though which was very much needed with a newborn. My DH will also be able to stay with me overnight if he chooses to. I have my mum coming to look after my DS.
    Last time the midwife kicked my DH out as visiting hours were over for lunch, even though I had only been out of theatre and back in my room for two hours. We found out afterwards that he was actually allowed to stay but by that point it was too late. I was so upset.

    with the motilium what was the dose you took? I needed a course after my dd had been very ill at around 9 months and found that I needed 3 x 3 tabs as per Dr Jack Newman's schedule (an American paed) to really get the milk flowing. I could then wean off it slowly

    Thank you Bambibambino for the link to the video, very interesting.

    It was a few years ago now so I can't actually remember what the dosage was.

    I will google Dr Jack Newman's schedule. Glad to hear that it got the milk flowing again. Hope your DD recovered quickly.

    Thanks again for your advice 😃😃😃
