Breastfeeding and Lactation Consulting

Breastfeeding Mother

Breastfeeding consultants are best for when you're dealing with the overwhelming nature of becoming a new mother. We understand the difficulty of giving birth, going from a hospital to home, and then breastfeeding is all up to you. Even experienced mothers giving birth after one or more babies know that each breastfeeding journey is different. Bella Bambino provides expert, compassionate breastfeeding and lactation consultants to ensure breastfeeding is an enjoyable, bonding, successful experience for all mothers and their babies.

When you visit with your newborn, you will meet with a team that includes an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), and medical professional. Our breastfeeding consultants will meet you in a comforting, private environment to discuss your breastfeeding history, your goals, and your medical history. Our breastfeeding consultants observe as you nurse your newborn. With this information, our breastfeeding consultants can devise a customized plan just for you that will help you meet your goals and ensure a positive experience for you and your baby. Bella Bambino also will send our information to your pediatrician and primary care provider.

How can a breastfeeding & lactation consultant help?

Breastfeeding can be emotionally and physically difficult and exhausting. As much as anything else, a breastfeeding & lactation consultant is a great source of emotional support and encouragement. The first few weeks of your baby's life are the most important time for establishing breastfeeding. Your Bella Bambino breastfeeding & lactation consultant will work with you and your baby to increase your chances of having a long and successful breastfeeding experience.

Your lactation consultant also will teach you:

  • How to maintain or increase your milk supply.
  • To recognize your newborn's hunger cues.
  • Determine a feeding schedule.
  • To know when your baby is latched properly.
  • Treatments for cracked or sore nipples.
  • Breast engorgement treatment.
  • How to find the best breastfeeding position for you and your baby.
  • How to make sure your baby is gaining weight appropriately.
  • To use your breast pump to express breastmilk.
