I first used Suzanne three years ago when I had my first daughter. She helped diagnose tongue tie and helped me be successful with breast-feeding when I was ready to quit. I just had twin babies in November and was worried about having enough milk supply. I struggled with it with my first one. She recommended good supplements and helped tremendously during her visits with lots of tips and techniques to make it work. Suzanne is super professional and definitely know what she's doing! I recommend her to anyone who is having a baby. My twin babies are 4 1/2 months old and are super healthy, chunky, happy babies! Thanks for your help!

I contacted Bayou City Breastfeeding out of desperation after suffering weeks of painful breastfeeding with my second child. With my first baby (breastfed for 14 months) I had no issues breastfeeding so I thought it would be the same the second time around. Nope! From the second day after my son was born I was having serious issues with nursing and I was not enjoying breastfeeding at all. The nurses in the hospital kept telling me I was a new mom and things would get better. Because of this I waited before getting help with a lactation consultant. During this time my son had reflux, gas, milk was spilling out the sides of his mouth with every feeding, and I was using a nipple shield at every feeding because of pain. Also, the nursing sessions took FOREVER (45+ minutes). A friend suggested I see Tessa, an IBCLC at Bayou City Breastfeeding, because of all the issues. Tessa came to my house and diagnosed my son with a tongue tie almost instantly. I remember tearing up after she left because I finally had answers. None of the other nurses or lactation consultants in the hospital even mentioned it could potentially be a tongue tie even after all the pain I was in. Tessa took her time with me and was very patient with all the questions I had (and I had a lot). Her exam of the baby was very thorough and she explained everything in a way I could understand. She gave me recommendations on who to see for my son’s tongue tie and gave me exercises to do with him to help with breastfeeding. Honestly if it wasn’t for Tessa there is no way I would have continued breastfeeding. I was literally on the verge of quitting. With her help I was able to continue breastfeeding for 15 months and my baby boy is thriving.

Suzanne went above and beyond the call of duty to help my daughter and I, and we are now on our way to recovery. She is very experienced and knows what she is doing. I will be forever grateful ❤️Thank you so much for helping us!

Bayou City Breastfeeding, Mary in particular, have been incredible. I called during a time of desperation, with a week old baby and no clue how hard breastfeeding was going to be. Suzanne answered my call on a Friday, listened to me and gave me tips on the phone and set me up with an appointment with Mary the next day. Since then, our breastfeeding journey has made a 180. Mary not only is incredibly compassionate and kind, she is extremely knowledgeable. She made us feel comfortable, informed and empowered. She has become such an integral part of our breastfeeding journey, and I credit so much our success (and sanity) to her. She started as a lactation consultant, but now is a dear friend. They say it takes a village, and I am so glad that Bayou City Breastfeeding is part of ours.

What a helpful experience! Karen was fantastic at explaining what and how to do things as well as why they make sense. She was encouraging and comforting and made me feel equipped to handle the challenges of breastfeeding with the right mentality. 🙌🙌

I had such a great visit & experience with Mary, I am so glad I chose Bayou City! My experience was warm & not rushed, we spent the better of 2 hours together & she really got to know me & my baby. She checked things you’d expect your pedi to check but they don’t always. I’m having low supply issues & thought I had tried everything but Mary still gave me good information & things to try that I haven’t. If you’re considering visiting an LC, do it!!! 10/10 Id recommend Bayou City to anyone breastfeeding!

I would have not been successful at breastfeeding without Tiphany’s support and guidance. I cannot recommend working with her enough. She was such a calming presence during the most stressful time with a newborn. She helped with latching, oral restrictions, pumping, and boosting supply. Now feeding is so easy. There is no way we could have gotten here without her. I am forever grateful for her support.

Nicole with Bayou City Breastfeeding provided much needed support to me as a new mom. They facilitated verifying my insurance benefits (BCBS PPO) which did provide coverage for the lactation apts. They billed the cost directly to my insurance which was a big timesaver. I opted to have the consults at my home, so I did have to pay a travel fee, but well worth the convenience with a new baby. The first apt was very thorough, over 2 hours long in which she took a detailed medical history and listened to my concerns. She provided me with a variety of tools and tips to try, with lots of kindness and encouragement. At follow up visits we reviewed different positions, best latch techniques, and a plan for pumping when I returned to work. After each visit I received a detailed email with plan and resources. For any moms with breastfeeding concerns I highly recommend Nicole! With her help my baby was able to drop formula supplementation and is back on 100% breast milk.
