"How wonderful to find Healthy Babies Happy Families! The store is very well stocked with all sorts of items that new parents might need starting to breastfeed; hospital grade breast pumps, bras for pumping, breast milk storage containers, etc. But probably the best part about this store is Lisy Peters, the owner and lactation consultant. Patient, calm and very knowledgeable- Lisy explains breastfeeding in a way that nervous & often exhausted mothers can understand. Having been a pediatric nurse for 20 years, Lisy has experience in dealing with all sorts of people. I highly recommend her and her store. I only wish it was closer to the city but its still worth the drive to Niles!" -Laura D

"After seeing a couple lactation consultants and having a very difficult time breastfeeding, I was referred to healthy babies. Lisy made me feel calm and confidant. I also rented a medela symphony pump, at a very low price. She follows up with me to see how things are going! I wish I would have found her sooner, it would have saved me so much frustration. I plan on having her assistance with any future children. She went above and beyond for my baby and I."   -Kelli D

"After being unsuccessful in breastfeeding my first two children, I was sure I wouldn't have any luck with my third child.  I decided to forego breastfeeding and came to Healthy Babies Happy Families to rent a breastpump.  Here I met Lisy, who encouraged me to nurse the baby and offered to help me.  She showed me how to get my baby to properly latch on and we had our first successful feeding at her office. I have been able to exclusively breastfeed for three months! I would highly recommend Lisy to any mom who is having trouble with breastfeeding." -Sue S

 "I had a very difficult time with breastfeeding my baby due to inverted nipples.  Although several lactation consultants at the hospital tried to help me, I never got my baby to latch on.  I was exclusively pumping with a personal pump and end up having a lot of nipple damage and low milk supply.  I was miserable and ready to give up.  I heard about Lisy from one of my friends and she encouraged me to see her.  Without much hope, I decided to give breastfeeding one final try.  Lisy was very skilled in working with moms who are in difficult breastfeeding situations.  She prescribed me ointment to heal my nipples, let me use a hospital grade pump to increase my milk supply, and most of all, helped boost my confidence.  She was very patient and available to answer all my questions.  We had weekly visits and was able to exclusively breastfeed my baby.

"I had a great experience working with Lisy! Without her I would have given up breast feeding all together. She helped me and my little one by coming to my home, monitoring how much the baby was taking in at each feeding, looking at how my positioning could be improved and making countless phone calls to check on how everything was going when she wasn't with me. She not only helps me with breastfeeding, but because she has a NICU nursing background she was (and still is) a wealth of information on other topics I had questions about. On top of that the store has every breast feeding accessory you may need to help make your experience as easy as possible. Lisy helped me to sort through what I actually needed and what she has seen work with other moms rather than having to navigate through all the options myself. I recommend Lisy to all moms looking for a positive breast feeding experience!" -Deirdre K
