It has now been over a month since your last visit, and I wanted to tell you that my baby has been feeding on the breast successfully for almost 4 whole weeks! My baby is barely choking anymore, and I am no longer suffering from engorgement. My nipples have fully recovered – something which, I thought, would never happen! Finally, he has been gaining weight at the speed of light since switching back to the breast, and – although numbers are just numbers – he’s back to his birth centile curve! I really want to thank you for your help – you have been a huge help, and I would probably have given up without you!

I have been struggling with a painful latch and [my Lactation Consultant] helped me find a new comfortable position. Within the hour I had a much more comfortable latch, for which I am very thankful. She was very informative and helped me to understand how to approach breastfeeding a bit differently, as well as gave advice for how to approach offering an occasional bottle. I would highly recommend [London Lactation Consultants] for anyone struggling with breastfeeding.

I had an online review with [my Lactation Consultant] after I was having pain and signs my baby’s latch was not quite right…. My baby started the session very upset …. [my Lactation Consultant] quickly adapted the session to start with a feed. She quickly identified the area we needed to work on with positioning and we fixed the shallow latch problem instantly. I had a further review 24 hours later as the right latch was still quite shallow with the new position and we tried a different position altogether. Overall, she was very quick and knowledgable, and fixed our shallow latch. This came at a time where I was feeling quite desperate and upset about the feeding. My experience was amazing.

We worked with [my Lactation Consultant] at their clinic after my friend recommended her services. To say we were desperate for some support and practical guidance was an understatement. She ensured we left the clinic with a clear, manageable and pragmatic short term plan and support to have our daughter’s tongue tie dealt with successfully. Following on from this initial appointment [my Lactation Consultant] helped me understand how to best support our daughter as she learnt how to breast feed successfully after her frenectomy.
This might sound dramatic but I can genuinely say that we were close to giving up on breast feeding altogether before. I feel so privileged to have had access to such fantastic support so that we could continue breastfeeding. Our daughter is now 5 months old and we are loving every minute of pain-free breast feeding! I cannot recommend London Lactation Consultants enough – they changed our breast feeding journey for the better and I cannot thank them enough.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience. [My Lactation Consultant] has an incredible manner and was very patient and encouraging with me; exactly what I needed to hear during an emotional time. My daughter just turned two months old and this past month has been a completely different experience. We are breastfeeding almost exclusively now, something which I never thought would be possible during those early weeks.
