The Art of Breastfeeding

 

Breastfeeding is the optimal way to feed your baby. Just as a mother is capable of nourishing her baby for months in the womb, she is also capable of nourishing her baby at the breast. Breast milk is the ideal food for your baby.

Topics discussed at your Lactation Consultation:

  • Technique for Breastfeeding mothers
  • Signs your baby is getting enough milk
  • Expressing and storing Breast Milk
  • Using a Breast pump
  • Resolving Challenges when expressing your Milk
  • Supplementing
  • Signs of a good latch
  • Nipple soreness
  • Returning to work

Our breastfeeding room in the Port Jefferson office is inviting and warm for new mothers to get comfortable and relax with your baby. As you can see below, we offer a comfortable environment and we welcome you to make an appointment with our lactation specialist Dr. Visentin.
