distracted baby help
I just wanted to share a nursing story that hopefully will be helpful to other moms out there.
My baby boy just would NOT latch on, stay still, he was always all over the place, getting distracted and not feeding well.
I was so scared he wasn't getting enough so I had to supplement with bottles but I didn't want to do that, I just wanted to breast feed my baby.
After a couple weeks, I was looking online for tips and tricks to help and came across a post talking about a color patterned bra from Leading Lady nursing bras.
I checked it out and thought it was just a gimmick so I continued my search. Another week later and I kept wondering about that bra.
On the inside fabric after the cup folds down, there's this black and red patterned cartoon thing that "claims" it helps babies focus on feeding and gets their attention.
So I finally broke down and bought it, got it a few days later and tried it. I didn't really expect it to work, but I was so glad I had been wrong.
I'm not sure what it was, but that print thing really did get his attention and he started to be calmer during feedings, they lasted longer, and I was able to just breast feed him without and supplemental bottle.
It was a miracle. Again, I just wanted to share this because I know I'm not the only mom out there who had trouble with feedings. I hope that if someone sees this they consider looking into this bra because as cliche as it sounds, it worked for me. Now with another little one on the way, hopefully my arsenal of tools will make this time go better :) If anyone is interested, here's the link to the website where I got it
The product is the "baby sees it". I had gotten the wirefree, but there is a wired option if you want it. Good luck, happy bra shopping, and God Bless you all!
