I only pump 4 times a day now that I'm back at work and I feel like a pro. I'm super proud that I've fed my tiny humans with my own body and even more proud of myself for sticking it out. I've done it all at this point-nursed, tandem nursed, pumped, bottle fed, used formula—and I have two chunky happy babies to show for it
"Now my baby is 4 months old and I find myself being the one to reassure new moms that it may really suck right now but it gets better and they don’t have to do it alone."
If you’re having trouble breastfeeding, finding yourself in pain, worried about milk supply, baby’s weight gain or other related issues, a lactation consultant can help you and your baby find nursing success. IBCLCs provide the "gold standard" of care for new parents and their babies.
Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby. In addition to providing nutrition, your breast milk gives your baby disease-fighting immunities, bonding time, and the loving touch of skin-on-skin. Nursing often comes with challenges in the early days. Working closely with an experienced and supportive International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) can help you meet your breastfeeding goals. We’re here to help!
