(with Mara Neboshynsky, mom of 2) Mara was in bliss with the birth of her first-born. She thought she’d be one of those moms who breastfed hear baby forever. She read up and knew how to breastfeed. Like many of us, she thought “once I show baby the boob everything else will just take care of itself.”
But it didn’t happen.
She had low milk supply. She tried a breastfeeding pump. She had more milk production problems. She tried increasing her milk supply. She had a lot of breastfeeding challenges.
