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
Milk supply concerns
Sore nipples or breasts
Jaundice in a newborn
Prematurity
Suck dysfunction
Tongue problems
Breastfeeding and going back to work

 Other circumstances in which a lactation consultant can be helpful are:
Re-lactation
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.
