Infant Feeding Specialist
As an Infant Feeding Specialists, I offer unbiased and judgement free support surrounding feeding. I provide evidence based support. I do not take the place of a lactation consultant or your physician. My job is to support families surrounding feeding and any struggles they are having in the intermediary times until the family can be seen by a lactation consultant or physician.
I do not push or support one form of feeding over another, rather I support any and all ways of feeding. My goal is to build confidence and support my clients 100% in whatever they chose.
What I do:
Help clients create a feeding plan (spans whole first year)
Troubleshoot feeding issues while waiting to see lactation consultant or primary care physician
Help get baby to take bottle while nursing parent is at work or away from the home
Educate and support parents surrounding feeding their baby
Dispel common breastfeeding myths
Educate clients on all their feeding options
Educate clients on types of formula available (should they chose to formula feed)
Connect clients to community resources as needed
Refer to trusted lactation consultants
Breast pump selection, resources, and set up
