Oral Motor Series
At MOBI Motherhood Intl we address extreme breastfeeding challenges. While we hope that you will never experience the situations described here, we also know that too many mothers stop breastfeeding because they don’t have the information they need to overcome the circumstances they face. By being informed and getting to the root of the problems behind breastfeeding difficulties, both the issues of the mother and her baby can be appropriately addressed.
For the New Reader at MOBI –
Don’t Be Discouraged!
While general information and breastfeeding basics are to be found at MOBI Motherhood Intl’s website, our intent is to go beyond the norm in addressing extreme breastfeeding challenges. A woman who has never breastfed, reading at MOBI, could get the impression that breastfeeding must be really, really hard. This is not our intention. For most women, breastfeeding is not hard, especially if they are knowledgeable about the most common problems that can derail a breastfeeding relationship: events surrounding the birth, position and latch, and temporary, painful conditions such as engorgement, cracked nipples, plugged ducts, thrush and mastitis.
Many excellent websites provide breastfeeding basics and meet the needs of the majority of women. MOBI is for those few mothers who need information about extraordinary breastfeeding difficulties. As you read at MOBI, keep in mind that you will learn about many situations we hope you never experience. This knowledge can help you have empathy if you meet mothers going through difficult breastfeeding experiences. And if you were to encounter any of these problems yourself, this knowledge could help you get through them with a little less difficulty and emotional upheaval.
