Many people worry about how much milk they’re making. Is baby drinking enough? How much does a 1, 2, 3 month old need to eat? How often should he eat? Do I have enough milk?
As a predominantly bottle-feeding culture, we are more comfortable with bottles than breastfeeding. You can see how much milk baby drinks, so you have a visual confirmation that baby is being fed.
It can be hard to trust that your body is making enough. But I know you are capable of making enough milk, and I want to help you do that!
I like being able to come into a family’s home and help them feel confident that they growing a happy, healthy baby!
I bring a baby scale on home visits, so we can measure how much baby drinks while nursing. We can tell how much he’s gaining from week to week. We can make sure you are making enough milk for your baby.
We can also practice comfortable positions for you to nurse, so you can enjoy the sweet moments together with your baby.
We can talk about pumping to go back to work. We can talk about when it’s ok to introduce bottles and pacifiers. And we can talk about any other concerns you have.
Having a lactation professional give one-on-one in home support throughout the breastfeeding journey can make the process less stressful, less painful, and more enjoyable, relaxing, and fulfilling!
