Usually a problem-based visit for sore nipples, plugged ducts, poor baby weight gain & more. For those who are breastfeeding well, it is reassuring to get the confirmation that baby has gained weight. It is invaluable to get help early on so the necessary adjustments can be made for the comfort of mom & continuation of breastfeeding for baby.
