Sorry, the previous without comment somehow got away from me before I was
ready to send!

anyone have anything positive to say about the Latch Assist? Your 2
clients/patients do and, really, what does it matter what anyone else
thinks? If it helped them, it helped them.

It seems to be like most aids/devices - it works better for some mothers
than others; I've heard from mothers who found it helpful and those who said
it didn't help at all. And I'm sure as per other aids/devices it can be
overused or abused. As gizmos go it's a pretty inexpensive option and it
maybe just what certain mothers need, although we may not always be able to
know in advance which mothers those are...
