Infant Feeding Specialist
Pregma understands that not being able to breastfeed can be hugely stressful for a new mum, causing anxiety and worry. We have a number of expert infant feeding specialists that can offer guidance, support and help mums to breastfeed successfully.
An infant feeding specialist might be able to give you some key and effective support to solve any problems. Most postnatal problems can be easy to overcome, from pain when feeding to a baby that never seems full. Some of the things we can help with include:
- Painful feeding
- Colic and reflux
- Sore, cracked, damaged nipples
- Thrush, blocked ducts, mastitis
- Breastfeeding multitudes
- Low milk supply
- Slow weight gain for baby
- Returning to work whilst breastfeeding
- Introducing bottles, cups or other breast substitutes.
The list is not exhaustive, so please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your personal situation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pregma’s infant feeding specialists can accommodate your schedule, coming to the comfort and privacy of your home, ensuring you are relaxed and at ease.
The sessions can often be around 30 – 45 minutes long and happen daily or weekly for around a month. This gives enough time to ensure the baby is constantly drinking well and getting enough food.
The infant feeding specialist is here to help you with any worries or questions you may have about breastfeeding. During your appointment, they will speak to you in private, listen to your concerns and oversee how you are currently feeding. They will talk you through everything they do during the examination.
The infant feeding specialist will observe your baby’s appearance and behaviour, examining your breasts and nipples. They will help you to adjust your breastfeeding position if you need too, making sure that they have latched on properly.
The infant feeding specialist may suggest some other pointers that can help to encourage positive feeding, such as setting out a regular routine.
