As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I provide breast and bottle feeding support. Sometimes newborns are able to feed without a problem. Other times, the baby and mother may experience breastfeeding challenges.
Most expectant mothers have a deep desire to provide breastmilk to their babies. Almost all mothers can breastfeed or provide breastmilk. My desire is to help you realize your feeding goal through any challenge. I will help you develop a plan for your goal and work collaboratively with your care team.
Certified Lactations Counselors support feeding. If you are bottle-feeding or plan to, I will demonstrate paced bottle feeding. We will discuss the best bottle to use, burping techniques, and formula preparation how-tos. We will also discuss learning to recognize feeding cues, the baby’s satiation signals, and your baby’s expected intake needs.
