Thank you for such practical, non-judgemental and highly responsive advice, even later in the evening for my new mum feeding emergencies! Your finger feeding technique got Ella to latch properly when she needed to be mixed bottle and breast fed, enabling me to part breastfeed and bond for the critical first two months of her life, despite my very low milk supply. My only regret is not having had an individual session with you before the birth to plan for different feeding situations in more detail.
