La Leche League has a 24 hour breastfeeding helpline 1-877-4-LALECHE (1-877-452-5324).
This helpline provides information, education, and support for women who want to breastfeed, and to healthcare providers and others. Callers have access to the most current breastfeeding information, receive support from a helpline volunteer who is an accredited La Leche League Leader, and receive contact information for local LLL Leaders and Groups. They have live operators or callers can choose to leave a voicemail.
I have heard so many stories about how difficult and painful the breastfeeding relationship can be in the beginning, and experienced it myself, when I was told my new born had what is called a “barracuda” style of nursing OUCH!
I remember scouring the web trying to find answers to my breastfeeding questions at 2 AM and being constantly being disappointed by the lack of information out there.
Hope this helps some of you in your time of need.
