Give new mothers immediate access to expert lactation consultants who can answer questions and offer advice about breastfeeding and the challenges that may arise with feeding a newborn.

The Importance of Breastfeeding Support for Mother & Baby

Research supports that mothers who receive lactation consulting in the early stages of motherhood tend to have an easier time breastfeeding – and do so for longer.

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all babies have a feeding assessment between day 3 and day 5 to assess latch and weight gain1

  • Breastfeeding saves a family approximately $2000-$4000 annually, compared to cost of formula2

  • Breastfeeding mothers sleep an average of 45 minutes more a night, compared to those who formula feed3
