Breastfeeding Consultation

Breastfeeding Consultation

 

A Breastfeeding consultation includes:

  • assessment of mother and infant
  • taking a detailed health and feeding history
  • weighing the infant to assess weight gain/loss
  • observation of full feeding session
  • hands on assistance to maximize feeding skills and comfort

Milk intake at the breast is accurately measured by weighing the infant before and after nursing (with clothes) using a precise scale which measure up to half a teaspoon.

After the full assessment and measurement of milk transfer, the lactation consultant will suggest a feeding plan to best fit with mom’s and infant’s needs. The initial consultation may last between 60-90 minutes and should be coordinated with baby’s feeding time.

Breastfeeding success depends on several factors and one consultation may not be enough.  In an effort to support and promote breastfeeding follow-up visits are provided free of charge for customers.
