Do I need a lactation consultant?
If you are searching for lactation consultants, you may already know you need help. If you are still unsure, ask yourself the following questions:
Does it hurt when you nurse your baby?
Does your baby not latch well? Does your baby come off and on the breast frequently during a feeding? Do you hear clicking and popping while your baby is feeding?
Does your baby seem to cluster feed all day long? Does your baby not seem satisfied after a feeding?
Are feedings lasting too long and occurring too frequently?
Are you experiencing any nipple pain? Do you have cracks or bleeding of the nipples?
Are you concerned that you are not producing enough milk? Is your infant not gaining weight at checkups? Is your infant not having enough dirty diapers?
Are you making too much milk? Is your over supply causing difficulty with the latch?
Are you returning to work and needing help with pumping? Do you have questions about your pump or just about pumping in general?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, Baby Eyes Lactation is here to help!

During your lactation consult:
Amanda will review the history of you and baby to gain an understanding of your lactation challenges and concerns. Depending on how hungry baby is when you arrive, this may come first or last.
Amanda will observe a feeding and make any suggestions or adjustments to the positioning and latch as necessary.
If necessary, Amanda can assess babies mouth if there are any possible concerns of lip/tongue tie.
After much discussion, Amanda will leave you with a personalized care plan for you to use and reference for the next several days.
After your lactation consult:
Amanda will fax any information necessary to your child’s pediatrician and/or your OB.
You will have support from Amanda (via text, e-mail, or phone) for 14 days after our visit to make any adjustments necessary to your care plan.
If a follow up consult is necessary, this is available at a reduced price.
