Breastfeeding Your Baby

Our Office along with the American Academy of Pediatrics encourages all new mothers to breastfeed their newborns. Your breast-milk is the ideal food for your baby. It provides valuable nutrients and helps boost your child's immune system. Breastfeeding is a natural process, not a reflex. For most mothers it is an enjoyable experience which proceeds almost effortlessly, but that doesn't mean you will always do it perfectly from the start. Our office has specially trained professionals to assist you and your baby with your breastfeeding needs, questions or concerns.
