How long should I breastfeed

Nutrition and Lactation All in One Place

At Feed to Succeed we want to partner with moms, babies and families to meet their breastfeeding or breastmilk feeding goals. We understand the nutritional importance of breastfeeding and breast milk for babies, both in the short term and long term health of children. We also understand firsthand that breastfeeding can be challenging. Feed to Succeed’s Registered Dietitian Amanda Gordon is also an IBCLC, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.

 

 

How We Help

We help with all the typical breastfeeding concerns, such as latching, comfort, inadequate milk transfer or supply, nipple or breast pain and calming a fussy baby.

In addition, our lactation consulting services include a precise scale so we can help you with a weighted feed to actually see how much your baby is taking. We also can analyze the nutritional content of your breastmilk with our Creamatocrit machine–this is a quick, accurate and easy-to-perform measurement of the fat and calorie content in a mother’s milk.

“Amanda has been a savior during my breastfeeding journey! I had a really rough time at the beginning and if it weren’t for her expertise as a lactation consultant and suggested solutions I probably would have given up months ago. She listened to all of my issues, helped me calm down and relax, and gave me solutions that worked. She helped me let go of some of the pressure I was feeling to ‘do it right’ and helped me realize I was doing a-ok. I felt so supported and learned so much from her. I’m heading into my fourth month feeding my little guy, and I seriously could not have done it without her. Thank you Amanda and Feed to Succeed!” ^Sarah
