Lacatation Counseling

90-minute lactation counseling sessions are ideal for a multitude of situations:

  • Your newborn is feeding less than 8 times in 24 hours, or more than 12 times in 24 hours.

  • Your newborn takes more than 45 minutes to feed and/or does not seem satisfied to you.

  • Your newborn is sleeping more than 4-5 hours more than one time in a 24-hour period.

  • Your newborn has less than 6 wet diapers after day 4.

  • Your newborn has less than 3-4 stools after day 4.

  • You do not see a change in stooling to ‘transitional’ stools by day 3 or 4, or you do not see mature breastfeeding stools (yellowish, mustardy stools).

  • You have been told that your baby isn’t gaining weight as expected and/or your provider is encouraging supplementation.

  • You have breast or nipple pain, hard breasts that do not soften, or you feel uncomfortable.

  • You wonder if your baby is being satisfied.

  • You feel overwhelmed by breastfeeding or anxious about feeding your baby.
