What to Bring to Consultation

  1. Your baby, of course!
  2. Dress baby in something easy to get on and off as I will be weighing repeatedly with nothing but a diaper on. Please bring extra diapers.
  3. You will be breastfeeding, so wear something you are comfortable in.
  4. Bring ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you might be using for feeding, including nipple shield, tubing, syringes, bottles, etc. I want to see it all.
  5. Your pump if you are pumping (including parts)
  6. Some milk.  I prefer that you bring your milk or donor milk, but, if unavailable, then, formula.  Bring about 2 ounces. We may not need it at all, but just in case.
  7. Please do NOT bring any pillows with you.
  8. My office is very small, so a stroller will not fit. If you feel you must bring stroller, it will likely need to stay in hallway of office.
