For any unique or challenging circumstances uncovered during the consult, we will provide referrals to our trusted network of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
- Five In-Person/Skype Feeding Consults: After your baby's arrival, you can use these 1-2 hour consults any way you wish, whether that's an in-person visit during the first days home to check baby's latch, a Skype session to discuss pumping and returning to work, or a consult to talk about introducing solids and the pros and cons of purees versus babyled weaning.
