Masterful Troubleshooting

Masterful troubleshooting to come up with a plan that works for you and baby (ie., eliminate pain, increase baby happiness, increase mama happiness—and maybe even sleep!).



Pre & Post-Weight Feedings

Pre and post-weight feedings performed to determine how much baby is taking at breast.


Having a second set of eyes (that are experienced in just this thing) can put your mind at ease and make your breastfeeding experience a satisfying one.


How Do I Know if I Even Need a Private Lactation Consultation?

  • Are you in pain?  Does baby seem uncomfortable or having trouble latching?
  • Does something just feel “off” or “not right”?
  • Is baby not gaining weight well?  Has your doctor suggested supplementing with formula?
  • Do you or your baby have a complicating medical issue?
  • A history of breast surgery or injury?
  • Do you suspect an over-supply or an under-supply?
  • Are you going back to work?
  • Are you pumping and not getting much milk and/or it is hurting?  There are many things we can do to make pumping “not suck”!  Let’s meet to come up with a plan to get that milk out as efficiently and painlessly as possible.
