We are so thankful for Tessa & Suzanne! They are the reason my son is breastfeeding at 4 months. Tessa helped diagnose his posterior tongue & lip tie at 10 weeks, and helped immensely in the weeks after as he healed and learned to breastfeed again. I wish I had known about Tessa & Suzanne when I first had my baby! They're kind, thoughtful, work hard for you and your baby, and have been available whenever I need them to either come to my home, or for a quick piece advice via text. I highly recommend them!

I would highly recommend Suzanne Juel for your lactation needs! She is incredibly knowledgeable, has many years of experience, and was extremely helpful! With her assistance and support I was able to overcome all of my breastfeeding challenges!

After the birth of my first child in 2018 I naively thought that my child and I would know how to breastfeed and it would come naturally. Well the first month of his life he struggled to gain weight. So I looked for a lactation consultant covered by Aetna and found Bayou City Breastfeeding. I was consulted by Tessa Gardin. Looking back I wish I would have found Tessa sooner because she provided so much useful information. She is the reason I took my son to a chiropractor for cranio sacral adjustments and he was able to latch better. She is also the reason my milk output doubled and I was able to breastfeed until 11 months. After my second child was born on July 2020 I knew that I needed appointments with an LC right away. My daughter struggled with latch on my left breast, was biting my nipples and preferred to turn her head to her left side. So I saw Suzanne Juel 3 days after the birth. Suzanne is equally as helpful as Tessa and provided a lot of educational resources and diagrams that illustrated breastfeeding, milk production, and foods that increase milk supply. Suzanne showed me some alternate feeding positions that I use now since they are more comfortable. Suzanne recommended that my daughter get chiropractic adjustments. I took my daughter to a chiropractor and the adjustments improved her alignment significantly. Now my daughter does not have any latch issues, she is able to remove all the milk out on her own and she is no longer biting. She has exceeded the required weight gain for her age.

My initial consultation was amazing! Nicole listened to all my concerns and issues we've been having then gave tips on how we could begin fixing them. She demonstrated exercises and made sure she explained everything we discussed in detail. I feel like baby and I are in great hands and on our way to a healthy breastfeeding journey.

Working with Suzanne at Bayou City Breastfeeding saved our breastfeeding journey. Suzanne helped to diagnose a tongue and lip tie in our infant daughter and outlined each of the steps needed to correct the ties. We have seen an improvement in latch, transfer of milk, time spent feeding and so much more.
In addition to the ties, Suzanne helped me as mom to get my milk supply back after it dropped drastically due to a poor latch. Suzanne outlined the steps needed for feedings and pumping, suggested supplements and vitamins to ensure I was giving my body the best chance to produce milk and most importantly was a huge emotional support throughout the process.
I cannot say enough positive things about my experience and would recommend Bayou City Breastfeeding to any mom who is passionate about their breastfeeding journey.

I've been working with Karen for 5 months now. She has been truly exceptional. She has idea galore, tips and tricks I've never heard (this is my 3rd kiddo) and sage, wise advice. I'm not sure if we would still be breastfeeding without her. She is a gem. I would absolutely recommend Karen and Bayou City Breastfeeding. Without a doubt!!

Brandy Lightfoot is one of the most fabulous healthcare professionals I have ever met. She is patient, kind, extremely passionate, and knowledgeable in all things feeding related. I am extremely grateful to have her experience and expertise as I navigate being a first time mom and grow in my breastfeeding journey. I can’t recommend her and Bayou City Breastfeeding enough if you are struggling with feeding (breast or not) difficulties. They are organized from the top down and invested in patient success and comfort. My daughter has been struggling with breastfeeding in many ways. Brandy identified and recommended an assessment with an ENT to where my daughter had lip, tongue, and cheek ties at 9 weeks old. She has been encouraging us every step of the way and provided assistance with her oral exercise program, homeopathic pain remedy, and being present at the procedure. Thank you Bayou City Breastfeeding for your organization and thorough processes in place. Thank you Brandy for sharing you gift and love for helping mommas succeed and feel they are enough for their babies.

Wow, I just met with Suzanne Juels today, and I cannot even begin to express how wonderfully educated this woman is. She is truly a blessing and very knowledgeable. She has answered and given so much advice and tips on our journey with our baby and family! She has given me a wealth of information that even after 10yrs of seeing doctors couldn’t answer. She was kind, patient and very informative. I wish more women could have access to this type of service! I look forward to improving my baby’s health and our breastfeeding journey. Thanks so much!
