The first few weeks of breastfeeding can be very trying at times--but rest assured that with the proper support it can get better. While your doctor may be very supportive of breastfeeding, pediatricians are not breastfeeding experts. If you are having any issues with breastfeeding, including pinching or pain, or if your baby is gaining weight slowly or not at all, please don't continue to try to figure this out on your own! Most of the time a simple suggestion from a breastfeeding professional is all it takes to make your life much easier. Most need extra support during this early period of adjustment; others may find they need help later on, when going back to work or dealing with other issues that may arise. Breastfeeding Consultations are available now with our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. And because it's us, you can trust that the information you receive is based on current research and identified best practices, to support you in your breastfeeding goals.
If you have any questions or concerns, if it is painful to nurse your baby, if you are "hooked" on nipple shields, if your baby is gaining weight slowly or not at all, please don't spend another day worrying or wondering. We can address all the common concerns, check your baby's latch, weigh your baby, and provide simple, helpful adjustments to immediately relieve your discomfort and promote a successful breastfeeding relationship. We can also help you identify the more serious health concerns, and provide one-on-one consultations to address your individual needs.
