Are you at home with your newborn struggling with latch or sore nipples? Wondering if your baby is getting enough milk? Wondering why you are feeding so often? Hearing something different from everyone you talk to? Maybe you were told to supplement with expressed milk or formula, but you really want to just breastfeed and are not sure how to break the cycle. When you schedule a lactation consultation, breastfeeding will be fully assessed, we will weight the baby before and after feeding to measure how much milk the baby is getting. We will create a lactation plan together to get you back on track, then continually montior, assess, and make adjustments.
Are you returning to work and concerned about building a "stash" for the freezer, wondering how much milk to leave for your child-care provider, wondering how many times to pump during the work day? Consider scheduling a Returning to Work consultation.
