Lactation consult: Labor and delivery wards now usually have lactation consultants on their staff to help with just the problem that you're having. Breast-feeding has become very privatized and so for some people it just doesn't seem normal. However it's a natural phenomenon and is one of the best ways you can care for your baby. Seek help.
