What can I do if I am having trouble breastfeeding?


Many resources are available for women who have trouble breastfeeding – it is certainly no easy task! The National Breastfeeding Helpline, reached at (800) 994-9662, is helpful. The WIC Program is also supportive.

Many women who find that their little ones do not want to drink are experiencing something that is known as a “nursing strike.” Infants may decline to feed because they are in pain from teething or an ear infection. They might also simply have a stuffy nose, a change in you milk’s taste or an aversion to the way you smell. Additionally, your milk supply might seem reduced to your infant.
