Why might I need a Lactation Consultant?
The most common problems
breastfeeding moms have are:
Being unable to latch baby onto the breast
Baby gaining weight too slowly
Reducing/eliminating formula supplementation
Milk supply concerns
Sore nipples or breasts
Jaundice in a newborn
Breastfeeding and going back to work
Other circumstances in which a lactation consultant can be helpful are:
Breastfeeding after breast augmentation or reduction
Induced lactation for adoption
Breastfeeding twins or higher order multiples
A professional breastfeeding consultation can often be the key to continuing breastfeeding or not.
