Totally worth it! As a new mom, I was stressed out with breastfeeding. After leaving the hospital, I realized I needed a ton of support as breastfeeding is physically and emotionally draining. Suzanne helped me in so many ways; now my supply is up and my son is nursing a lot better than he was before!! I highly recommend!

My 4 month old and I are extremely grateful for all the information and training we received from a home visit with Tiphany. Thanks to her, we are now on the right path to addressing some serious lip, tongue and buccal ties! In turn my babe will drastically reduce her risks of oral malformations as she develops during her childhood years. And of course improve her ability to take a bottle, which was the original reason for our visit! Thank you Tiphany!!

Suzanne is amazing. I always thought breastfeeding would be so natural and easy but that just wasn't the case for me. I struggled with my first two kiddos...

Our lactation consultant Tiphany has been awesome. We had a prenatal consult which really prepared us well for when the baby arrived. She saw us for a home visit after the baby was born and has been extremely helpful in addressing some issues very early on. We’ve had one visit so far and will have some additional visits too. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her support and working with Bayou City Breastfeeding has been wonderful. Highly recommended! There’s so much that goes into breastfeeding I feel that any mom could use a consult for support—get help early!!

I am so grateful for Bayou City LC! I was having major pain from what I thought was a clogged duct. Even though it was a Sunday they called me and it turned out I have mastitis. I was able to have the consultation with Suzanne for recommendations, meet with my doctor and get a prescription all within 2 hours. ON A SUNDAY! They are genuinely caring and there to help. I don't know what I would do without them. Biggest thanks to Amanda for getting me on the books and Suzanne for taking time with me on a weekend. They also helped when I was having issues with an oversupply. I will continue to use them through my breastfeeding journey and recommending them to others. Thank you!

After a disheartening 6 month check up revealed my little man was still not gaining weight (although he was breastfeeding 8-10 times a day), I knew I needed some wisdom and guidance from a specialist. Suzanne performed a mouth assessment first thing and pointed out our son's tongue tie - much to our surprise as he had tongue tie surgery at 5 days old! While it was frustrating to learn that his tongue tie had not been performed completely or it had reattached (something our first doctor did not warn us about or even mention being a possibility), it was so great to figure out what the issue was. He was eating plenty of times a day, but was not eating as efficiently has he should've been. Suzanne's knowledge and guidance through a second tongue tie procedure and recovery process (much more involved second time around) was vital! My supply also tanked at this time and she got me on a plan to get it back up. It wasn't easy, but she was realistic and encouraging and provided the structure and education I needed to make it happen. Happy to report our little man has the cutest of rolls, back on the charts, growing like a weed and I was able to stick with my goal of breastfeeding for at least one year (which at one point was looking super grim!) So so thankful for Suzanne's help, accessibility and coaching through one of the hardest stretches of motherhood to date. Even if you're not having any major issues, I highly recommend meeting with a lactation consultant! The education, tips and tricks are invaluable! Thank you thank you thank you!

I had a very difficult experience with my little guys latch along with yeast and thrush that was making me want to give up. If it wasn’t for Suzanne I would not be having the perfect latch and no pain feeds I am now experiencing. After a tongue and lip tie procedure and a very detailed plan my little man is a pro. She is very knowledgeable and patient along with being very passionate and caring. I just wish I had known about her with my first child.

Had a home visit during COVID...the LC that came was wearing a mask and was disinfecting everything which was a bonus! She corrected my baby’s latch in the first try and it was a game changer! I didn’t realize I wasn’t doing it right! She gave me some exercises to help with my baby’s minor tongue tie which I appreciated vs going straight to the operation route. We are 7 weeks now and things are great! Baby’s latch is strong and she is gaining weight. I was hating breast feeding before...now I’m loving it!

Erica was amazingly helpful. Before I met with her I had given up on breastfeeding and now my baby and I are able to latch and feed on a consistent basis. Can not recommend this enough! They even take insurance!
