All Things Breastfeeding Episode 30: Finn’s Nursing Strike

There is nothing worse than a nursing strike!

This week on the podcast, Intern Barb tells her experience with a recent nursing strike. Just when breastfeeding was so easy, a new challenge presented itself. It was an extremely emotional experience, and luckily Finn is back to nursing now!
