Early Intervention is Key
One question I often get asked is, "When should I schedule a breastfeeding consultation?". I can't stress enough the importance of early intervention. When it comes to breastfeeding or bottle feeding your baby, it's never too early to seek help if you are struggling. Whether you have questions about your breastmilk supply or are noticing baby having some difficulty during feeding, the earlier you seek help, the better. Breastfeeding can be difficult! It doesn't always come easy to every mom and baby. Waiting too long to seek intervention can cause feeding aversions or make it more difficult to break poor feeding habits. Early intervention lessens the stress on mom and baby. I always recommend seeking a prenatal feeding consultation, then scheduling a consult during the first week of baby's life.
At Little Ones, Infant and Pediatric Therapy, during our prenatal feeding consultations, we will offer the opportunity to sign up for an infant feeding consultation. If you are local to Lubbock, TX and attend a prenatal consultation, we always offer to do the initial newborn feeding consultation in your home, as we understand it can be difficult to leave during that first week. Contact us today to establish support for feeding your baby! Again, the earlier the better!
