However you imagine your breastfeeding experience, I can help you.

Your picture-perfect vision of breastfeeding your baby has disintegrated into hours, days, or weeks of tears and frustration.

You’re probably experiencing one of these common breastfeeding problems:

  • You are not sure if you’re making enough milk because you’ve been told to supplement, or even quit.
  • You’re delaying feeds and cringing at the thought of nursing your baby because your nipples are sore!
  • Your baby may be fussing and crying, or falling asleep while breastfeeding.
  • You’re pumping, using nipple shields or feeding formula and getting further away from breastfeeding.

​Or, you may have other problems like tongue tie, plugged ducts, mastitis, or low pumping output. You may need flange sizing or nursing bras that fit. You may be returning to work and need guidance on schedules, bottle feeding and milk storage. Or, you may be ready to wean in a way that doesn’t damage your relationship with your baby.

No matter what your challenge, you have lots of questions. Breastfeeding is probably the hardest thing you’ve ever done, and it will get easier, I promise.

Help in Overcoming Breastfeeding Problems

You started breastfeeding.

Whether intentionally, or you thought you’d just give it a try, things have gotten complicated. You are realizing there’s a lot to know because your newborn is depending on you to eat and grow. Fortunately, breastfeeding help is made simple with support and information from a skilled, caring and knowledgable International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, an IBCLC.

However you started breastfeeding and whatever your goal, I help you:

  • Overcome your overwhelm through step-by-step guidance for you and your baby right now.
  • Understand your difficulties and continue breastfeeding through almost every challenge.
  • Enjoy breastfeeding, a way of mothering that is as vital to you, as it is to your baby.
  • Discover you and your baby’s own ways of learning together, and bonding through breastfeeding.
