Village Pediatric Group in Tuckahoe, NY, is proud to have a registered lactation consultant on site. Although many expectant moms dream of nursing their babies, the reality is that breastfeeding is arduous work. Problems ranging from latching difficulties to low milk output are exceptionally common, and many breastfed babies have difficulty gaining weight as a result. The problems can compound rapidly when a breastfeeding mother wants to return to work, as pumping and storing milk could be considered an art form on its own.
A lactation consultant is a trained professional who specializes in breastfeeding. Our registered lactation consultant is ready to teach you how to feed your new baby, assist you with solving any problems that you encounter, and help you navigate new equipment such as breast pumps.
