Meeting your goals

Your goal may be exclusive breastfeeding, combi-feeding or pumping and bottlefeeding. My aim isn’t to “make” you breastfeed but help you meet your own goals, whatever they are. 

How a lactation consultant can help:

An IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) is considered the gold standard in breastfeeding support. It is the highest qualification in breastfeeding. IBCLC’s are qualified to assess complex feeding problems that other health care professionals may not be familiar with. 

Some of these issues include: 

*I recommend a rescue call as this integrates sleep and weaning support.

Investing in breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is important to many families, and a great way to optimize your baby’s health and your health too. While investing in a breastfeeding consultation may seem like a lot of money, breastfeeding is cheaper than formula feeding in the long run. 

Instead of buying pumps, nipple shields and other breastfeeding equipment, a breastfeeding consultation usually involves solutions WITHOUT additional purchases. 

Meeting your breastfeeding goals can be an positive aspect of parenthood, which is invaluable. Many parents say that breastfeeding is more than just nutrition, but a way to nurture and parent their babies. 

Often, a positive breastfeeding experience second or third time around can help a mum heal from a previous traumatic breastfeeding journey.

Breastfeeding your first baby

If this is your first baby, you might be struggling to know what’s normal and what’s not. Breastfeeding, while natural, is a steep learning curve. Get the reassurance and knowledge you need from a breastfeeding specialist. 

When feeding is painful, or you’re worried that your baby isn’t getting enough milk, you can feel stressed and unsure. A breastfeeding consultation will help you identify when breastfeeding is going well and give you a plan for resolving your breastfeeding issues. 

Breastfeeding your second or third baby

Perhaps you had a difficult experience breastfeeding the first time around. You’re pregnant again, or have just had a baby, and you want to meet your feeding goals this time. What you need is to discuss your options with an IBCLC, who can help you come up with a plan. 

Usually, with a good plan in place, breastfeeding goes more smoothly the second (or third!) time around. Avoid the issues that happened the first time, or know exactly what to do if they happen again.

Perhaps you are ready to go back to work, and you’re not sure how to manage pumping and giving bottles. 

Maybe you’re struggling with sleep at night time and are considering night weaning (I recommend booking a sleep rescue call rather than a breastfeeding consultation). 

Or maybe you’re ready to stop feeding altogether and need some support.  

A breastfeeding consultation can help with any of these issues.
