Testimonial: Josslyn Streett
“Cass Romero has been there for me with breastfeeding help, advice and comfort anytime I needed her through both of my boys breastfeeding years. If it weren’t for her I would have given up and my boys would not have known the health and emotional comfort that they have been blessed with due to breastfeeding. My oldest son couldn’t suck hard enough to latch on properly in the beginning. We did not supplement with formula by Cass’ advice, but I did pump and bottle feed in the beginning. I seriously wanted to breastfeed and Cass stuck with me for an emotional eight weeks until Robby finally was back on the breast full time. He breastfed, by his choice for three years. He’s never been sick, not one day. Also, he is a kid who very badly needed the extra comfort that comes with the one on one contact with his mother through breastfeeding. I’m glad I don’t have to know how he would be emotionally today without all that extra touch and attention he received.
With my second son, Sawyer, the latching on went well after my home-birth but I had other issues. I once called Cass with a desperate call of a lump in my breast I had not had before with Robby. I did not know at the time that she was on vacation with her family. She called me back and stayed on the phone with me from out of state until she knew I was calm and able to work through the issue. She helped with logical advice and information that could help me right then and there. She was always comforting, supportive and positive that no matter what we could work through the issues. My younger son is now 8 and a half years old. He breastfed by choice for four years and two months and also has not been sick more than the cough he had last week. I’m so grateful for Cass for her caring, compassionate and diligent friendship to me, my family and breastfeeding for all. Thank you Cass for all you did for my family. We are all truly grateful.”
