Health: A Nursing Mom’s Path to Discovery

My amazing daughter, Cayenne, was born the summer of 2011 at 2:56 AM, with her eyes open and ready to take in the world. She latched on to my breast right away and we quickly became nursing partners. The problem was that except during nursing, my daughter spent most of her waking hours crying.
At first I thought, “crying is just what babies do.” That’s what I’d seen on TV. But after Cayenne had been crying nearly non-stop for several weeks, it hit me that something must be wrong.
