Breast/Chest Feeding Consultation
Initial Visit: 1.5 – 2 hours
Includes an assessment of parent and baby, detailed health history, observing a feeding, pre and post feed weight and a comprehensive care plan.
This service is also available for Bottle Feeding Families. If your breastfed baby struggles to accept a bottle, an initial home visit can help get you on your way to bottle feeding success.
I am available for post-visit communication for 1 week after the visit.
