Re: lactation consultant vs counselor

Yea depending on the degree you have already decides how many contact hours you have to do . Its alot of info to take in for sure . I really upsets me tho that the only people I can ever get to answer my questions try to make it sound like its a life long ammount of work , I mean I know its gonna take time , I'm not thinking I'm gonna be able to do it in a small period of time ( like 1 week like these small courses) But I know it can be done ina reasonable amt of time if you actually have the time . I feel like every time I ask online about it the people who are actualy IBCLCs' are really negitive about it and seem to discourage people by saying dont bother . Its kinda sad . I dont know if they are saying not to bother with becoming BC ( which is important to me ) or if they are saying dont bother in general . Its almost like a compitition thing and thats sad
