Infant Feeding and Lactation Consultation
A baby that is not feeding can quickly turn into any new mom's nightmare. A baby must eat effectively several times per day. However, there are times when a baby cannot properly latch onto the mother or bottle or they simply cannot generate enough suction to get the milk they need.
This can be for any number of issues, and these issues need to be addressed immediately. Babies that are 4-8 weeks old need to nurse 7-9 times per day. New borns need to nurse 8-12 times a day. Babies younger than 8 weeks cannot go even half a day without eating before it becomes a problem.
But do not worry. There is hope if your baby is not feeding properly. Our certified lactation consultants can help your child get on track to being a good eater. Contact us immediately if your baby is having difficulty with feeding/nursing.
