What Happens at a Breastfeeding Consultation?

During this visit, the consultant may take the weight of the baby and will observe a nursing session.

How do I Prepare for a Breastfeeding Consultation?

Please see our insurance page for reimbursement and coverage tips.

 

 

How can I use my insurance to help cover a consult?

If the baby is a newborn please limit the amount you feed the baby to 1/2 a normal feeding amount if your appointment is within 1 hour so the baby is more willing to feed during the visit.

 

If you are supplementing with breastmilk or formula please bring extra milk with you if you have a non-latching baby.

 

If your baby is a newborn and experiencing weight loss or slow weight gain please bring a record of the number of breastfeedings, bottle feedings, and supplement amounts along with the number of soiled and wet diapers.
