    Default Lactation consultant Melbourne, recommendation anyone? Nipple confusion!!

    An update!
    So many thanks for all of your advice.
    I changed the bottle teat to a medela calma which requires bub to make an effort to feed. Two days later he attached to the breast but not for long. The next day I went back to my hospital for a day with a LC. He fed well but painful. Tongue tie diagnosed and snipped same day. 2 days later bub has bf all day with minimal formula top ups. The pain is minimal and the latch is much improved. I'm amazed we've come this far given he wouldn't attach at all less than a week ago. About an hour ago I gave him the bottle and he fussed over it. Swapped to the breast and he has latched like a piranha and drinking happily. Can't believe it! Hopefully this story will give any others hope who read this thread. Thanks again

    I am also in the inner North. My local ABA group is lead by a great LC. Her name is Simone Casey, I will FB message her and ask for contact details for you. I will PM you when I have them. In the meantime call the ABA as they should be able to put you in touch with some.
    Just realised it was Simone who worked with me at the hospital a few days ago and now success. Indeed she is great!

    I passed on your positive experience to Simone, she was really pleased to hear it!

    She mentioned that the hospital's FB page has a smile sheet where you can leave a message. The feedback they receive helps them to keep the service going and improve it where needed. 👍
