LACTATION

Prenatal Support

In our experience, the best way to get prepared for breastfeeding is to start before the baby arrives. We have found the more informed a parent is prior to the baby being born, the less stress and challenges they face during the early days of breastfeeding. Our prenatal consulting sessions allow us to review your feeding goals, answer your questions, and review solutions to common problems to prepare you for your breastfeeding journey. Learn more

INFANT & TODDLER FEEDING

Feeding therapy for babies and toddlers helps parents overcome any feeding-related challenges related to breast and bottle feeding, and/or transitioning to solid foods. We are committed to helping families get off to a great start through direct therapy, parent coaching, and education around what to look for possible red flags that may lead to future feeding, communicaiton, or sensory challenges. during that first year of life.

We take a family-centered and whole-child approach to help you problem-solve challenges related to:

BOTTLE FEEDING​
  • choosing the right bottle

  • how to introduce a bottle

  • bottle refusal

  • coughing while feeding

  • milk leaking from the mouth

  • clicking while feeding

TRANSITIONING TO SOLIDS​
  • creating a plan to introduce solids

  • difficulty during the transition to solids

  • oral aversions

  • picky eating

  • food aversions

  • tongue-tie

Early intervention is key to positive future outcomes. We want our families and clients to be as educated and informed as possible. Our goal is to empower parents as much as possible as they are the ones supporting their child's feeding at home. Parents are a very active part of every therapy session.

Infant and toddler feeding therapy will lead to improved mealtime experiences, a decrease in aversions, an increase in the variety of foods eaten, and an overall improved relationship with food and mealtimes. Learn more
