We are a group of Pediatricians, Nurse Practitioners and Lactation Consultants that focus on prenatal prevention, early diagnosis and management of lactation and breastfeeding issues. Our center is both a place for newborns to learn the normal process of breastfeeding as well as a referral center. We are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat the mother and baby for a large variety of lactation challenges.

Effective and knowledgeable lactation help by Pediatricians and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBLCE®) specialized in breastfeeding medicine in Fairfield County at a dedicated place that is one of only 26 centers recognized as an IBLCE® and ILCA®  CARE AWARD CENTER.

We accept most insurance for both Mother and Baby.

A consultation takes about one hour and includes a careful history and examination of both mother and baby. If appropriate we observe a breastfeeding session and actively work with the breastfeeding pair. After making a diagnosis we offer practical, common sense advice to help solve the issue. We recognize that each mother and baby is unique and our advice may differ from patient to patient. Return appointments are usually necessary until the concern has resolved.

We see patients from any medical practice and report back to your Obstetrician and/or Pediatrician. Don’t wait, get the help you need today!
