My Mood:
I would try insurance first and see if they cover it. With Obamacare, our insurance started covering lactation consultants. Then I would contact the hospital immediately, if they had consultants on-hand during your stay. At my hospital it was expected that you continue communicating with the hospital LCs until you worked out the kinks. They did individual home visits, which were pricier, and group consults which were a nominal fee. You could also talk over the phone and I don't think they charged for that. The next option I would look at is the OB office. They might have additional contacts. I've never tried LLL but a local chapter might be able to connect you to other resources. It can't hurt. On top of all that, I would break down and pump in between meals, just in case.

Is your baby very sleepy?

Good luck!
