Bosom Buddies offers lactation consultations in our stores, in your home, in the hospital or phone if appropriate. The fee is $80 per hour, billed on the quarter hour (additional travel fees may apply). Appointments are available 7 days per week, day and evening, based on the needs of mother and baby.
Our consultant will take a history, assess needs and work with you to develop a plan to move toward your breastfeeding goals. Consultants have experience with sore nipples and damaged nipples, slow weight gain, low milk supply, returning to work, bottle and/or breast refusal, nursing multiples, pumping issues and more. A face-to-face consult includes before and after feeding weights, observation of a feeding and pumping as needed, and a written report for mother and baby's health care provider.
Our consultants also work with mothers before baby's birth.
