  • Feeding Problems in Infancy and Lactation SupportOpen or Close

    Nothing is more frustrating than experiencing difficulty in performing what should be the most basic act of parenting: feeding your baby. The truth is that it is not always as easy as it seems. Breastfeeding can be challenging and every mom needs a custom solution. Sometimes even bottle feeding can be hard! We listen to each parent’s concerns and create an individualized plan for each child. We have a lactation support specialist, a neonatal nurse practitioner, and physical and occupational therapists on-call to help you. You and your baby will be surrounded by the support of professionals who truly care about helping you and your child achieve your feeding goals.

    Tongue Tie (Ankyloglossia):
    Sometimes painful breastfeeding and/or other difficulties in feeding may be caused by “tongue tie”. We can assess and correct the issue in the office with a procedure to release the tongue called a frenulectomy. Please call us for an evaluation if you think your baby may be having problems due to this.
