As a Postpartum Doula, Lactation Peer Counselor, and Breastfeeding Mother, I know how difficult breastfeeding can be in those beginning months. Your baby is learning to eat in the outside world full of distractions, and you, as a mother, are trying to comfort and nurture your child. My daughter was born premature and we struggled a lot during those first weeks. It was a cycle of attempting to breastfeed, crying, then pumping and trying to feed her with a bottle. She refused them all, except, The Comotomo. The shape of the nipple was wide and familiar to help her continue building muscles and learn to latch correctly at the breast. The feel of the bottle was comfortable to her as it is soft and gives. I am now an owner of Charlotte Doulas, in NC and I recommend these to all of my clients. They changed my life and I know they change others as well! Thank you so much for creating this product.
