Kelly's Breastfeeding Story "I was a total mess with cracked bleeding nipples"

3 golden hours breastfeeding tips pain free breastfeeding
 

After successfully breastfeeding 5 babies, Kelly experienced unexpected agony from painful nipples with baby number 6.
 
Because of interruptions to her 3 Golden Hours, as well as forceful breastfeeding techniques in hospital, this experienced mum goes on to say that had she been a first-time mum, she would have given up by day 5.
 
Protect your 3 Golden Hours and please don’t let anyone force your baby to your breast.

"I had successfully breastfed my previous 5 and then had significant challenges with my 6th. Complete refusal to latch, low weight gain, low supply, tongue tie, just to name to a few. I was using bottles, nipple shields, SNS feeding systems, I was a total mess with cracked bleeding nipples.

I tried everything and everyone, including 3 different lactation consultants, private midwives, ECH nurse, tongue tie clinic. Not one person could help. I was literally looking at a can of formula with tears in my eyes.

Within 3 weeks of learning from Dr Robyn Thompson my son was exclusively breastfeeding from both breasts pain free. I am not saying it was easy in those 3 weeks, but if it wasn’t for Dr Robyn, Joanne Thompson and the amazing team at The Thompson Method I wouldn’t still be breastfeeding 1 year later πŸ’žπŸ’ž"

Kelly goes on to say that she wished she knew about The Thompson Method which is designed to help women reduce the risk of complications with their labour, birth and breastfeeding.

Update: "We just hit 2 years of breastfeeding and as well as saying thank you to Dr Robyn I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the amazing and beautiful ladies of the breastfeeding club

There have been times in the last year where the sleep deprivation kicked in that comes along with looking after 6 children, working, studying the list goes on that I nearly came close to stopping. However I read all your amazing posts which have been and continue to be inspiring, this along with my chunky monkey asking for his “minkies” kept me going, so thank you πŸ™πŸ»

So once again... THANK YOU Dr Robyn, the full team and all you incredible ladies πŸ₯°

Why do so many women struggle with the practice of breastfeeding?

Many women, particularly first time mothers, are focused on their labour and birth, thinking that breastfeeding will just happen easily and naturally, because that’s what nature intended.

If this sounds like you, don’t feel bad. It’s not your fault.

Logically, it makes sense, because a woman’s body is physically designed to breastfeed.

It is one of the most natural things a woman can do.

Unfortunately, this does not end up being the case for many women.

Why? Because the breastfeeding information that you’ll be taught in hospital is inconsistent, conflicting and most importantly is out of date.

But why should you trust the Thompson Method of Breastfeeding?

Advice from well-meaning friends and family may result in you feeling pressure to appease them, but often leaves you and your baby in all sorts of trouble. 

The reason why The Thompson Method is different to other sources is that it’s based on the PhD research from Dr Robyn Thompson a midwife and educator with over 45 years experience.

The evidence from her research clearly showed that painful nipple trauma was closely linked to common breastfeeding techniques that are being taught in most hospitals.

These techniques are forceful and outdated but unfortunately, many hospitals are still using and as a result, many women are experiencing nipple pain when breastfeeding.

But the Thompson Method is not just about the technique. The research uncovered so many more factors that were contributing to painful and stressful breastfeeding complications for so many women. And simply put, many of these complications can be avoided.  

It’s a holistic approach and a proven method that’s designed to help you give birth to your baby and build a bond with your baby through pain free breastfeeding.

What is the Thompson Method?

The Thompson Method is more than just breastfeeding tips, it's more than just a method…. It is a movement of women to become better informed, empowered and knowledgeable about what is important when they enter labor and breastfeeding.

Based on the research, knowledge, experience and wisdom of a midwife, educator and breastfeeding expert Dr Robyn Thompson (PhD) The Thompson Method helps women reduce the risk of common complications through education and online support.

The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Reviews | Preparing for breastfeeding with flat nipples

"As someone with flat nipples I found that knowing how to prepare them in pregnancy, understanding how to gently work with my baby using the Thompson Method rather than forcing her to my breast, allowing her to follow her instincts to latch etc, helped her to feed well, avoid damage and pain, meant I didn’t feel the need to use shields (as I have seen others advised to do straight up before even trying without).

I felt calm and confident when feeding my baby from the beginning, making it a positive and enjoyable experience from the start"πŸ’•

If you are asking yourself does The Thompson Method work? I'm proof that it does... | The Thompson Method Reviews

I had never successfully breastfed any of my other 2 children past the first few days so I was determined to breastfeed my daughter Lola for as long as I possibly could. I found The Thompson Method by chance when Lola was 5 months old after someone posted that she was searching for mums who were struggling to feed babies with tongue ties. I had already had my daughters tie corrected a week or so before but was still having issues. I met with dr Robyn and her team and it was the start of everything happening so beautifully and naturally when it came to breastfeeding. They were always there for me when I needed them for support and any little issues arose. I wish I had known about the Thompson Method from the very start! Still breastfeeding Lola at 14 months now and no stopping us β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Breastfeeding Engorgement Reflux

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Danielle T 

The Thompson Method Reviews | The most successful breastfeeding journey so far THANK YOU

"Hi Dr Robyn, I just wanted to say a quick thankyou. Because of your amazing videos, advice and the information available, I have had the most successful breastfeeding baby since her first breastfeed. This is my third baby, and I had nipples that blistered, bled and scabbed with my first, terrible engorgement and reflux with my second and both babies were unsettled for the first few months. My new baby girl is so settled as I'm reading her cues, letting her feed until she is ready to unlatch herself, and other than the slight initial nipple soreness my nipples are feeling great. So once again thank you for this service.

The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Reviews I tried the The Thompson Method...and it worked!  

"Just want to thank Robyn Thompson, Joanne Thompson and their team for the incredible work they’ve done creating the Thompson Method program and offering their support when needed. I wholeheartedly feel that by following the Thompson method my breastfeeding journey started off on the right foot and it’s been 6 months in and still going strong. There were some rough patches in the beginning but we made it through. I had these milk bath photos taken to commemorate this milestone. I wanted to give credit where credit is due! The best thing I can do is share this knowledge and recommend this program to every pregnant mother who will listen! Thank you!"

The Thompson Method Reviews | On the verge of giving up due to severe nipple pain

"I love looking down and finding my baby staring up at me. Thank you Thompson Method for getting us here despite a traumatic, extremely painful beginning! We're at 3 months exclusively breastfeeding now.  I was on the verge of giving up due to severe pain, but encouragement from my mom led me down a YouTube trail that landed me at the Thompson Method videos. So thankful for this group! We're 100% pain free & breastfeeding is now one of my favorite parts of being a mom.
