I am drinking a ton of water, juice and mothers milk tea. Eating has been less good but I am trying to eat lots of lean protein, salads etc. I've just been so busy that finding time to eat has been difficult.

I suspect her latch is bad. Both nipples are scabbed and sore, she fusses at the breast sometimes for 30 minutes before I can get her to latch. I can hear her gulping while feeding so I am pretty sure she's getting milk... I left a message with a certified location consultant and haven't heard back and I called her on Friday. I think I need to call other ones.
