We had our first visit with Tessa today and it was an amazing experience, she truly is wonderful at what she does. She is knowledgeable, professional, personable and easy to communicate with. I started with some of the exercises that she recommended and by our evening feed my daughter latched on both sides! We still have a lot of homework to do but this was major progress for us!-Caitlin Milam

We are grateful that Suzanne was able to make a home visit to evaluate my son's lip/tongue tie in the middle of a pandemic. She came highly recommended by our baby doula and our son's dentist's office. First of all, Suzanne understood our worries about COVID-19 and did everything she could to put our minds at ease and to keep us and our baby safe by being transparent about their cleaning protocols and by following very strict home visit protocols (reporting temperatures, masks on, gloves on, social distancing, hand washing, and diligently disinfecting equipments, etc). I would not have put my trust on anyone else to come in to our home at this time. During the visit, she was very thorough in taking my son's history, from birth up until now, and doing a complete physical evaluation from head to toe. Given her background and experience, she was able to identify additional issues quickly and make recommendations in order to avoid invasive procedures in the future. When the issue was not within her scope of practice, she immediately identified pertinent help for us to mitigate the issue. She followed up with us via email and text to make sure our questions were answered. She was extremely efficient, straightforward, and thoughtful, which is exactly the qualities we looked for in healthcare provider. We very much have enjoyed our visit with Suzanne and so did my 13-week old son!

Karen with Bayou City Breastfeeding was so helpful! She caught my son’s feeding and weight loss issues right away (the day after he was born) and helped us get on track to helping him gain weight and then get his tongue and lip ties revised. She was also so kind and compassionate and gave me a lot of confidence in my abilities and intuitions as a mother. Thank you Karen!

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.

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.

I had my 2nd visit today wit Suzanne and was really looking forward to appointment. I felt like my baby has improved with the exercises she recommended me last week. I am extremely happy I came across this company and I am very hopeful we are going to get better at breastfeeding following her instructions.

When I called Suzanne the day my daughter was born because I was concerned she might have a tongue tie, Suzanne was quick to find someone in my area who could make a home visit...and she was able to come over that evening! When Suzanne found out I didn’t have insurance she offered to let me apply for their grant which greatly reduced the financial burden and allowed me to get the immediate help I needed to get us on the right track for breastfeeding. Mary was our lactation consultant and she has been a God-send. She is so experienced and knowledgeable about breastfeeding, lip and tongue ties and she is always so encouraging! She took her time with each appointment we had with her. I wanted to avoid giving my babe the bottle and she helped us navigate our breastfeeding journey in a way that helped us stay on the right track...getting my babe the nourishment she needed while keeping her at the breast as much as possible...all without introducing the bottle. Mary was always checking in on us between appointments through text and phone calls. Because of Mary’s incredible support my babe is very close to being weaned off the supplementation and completely exclusively breastfeeding!

Suzanne is patient and gave me a lot of new/ great information. I didn’t realized I was doing some things wrong. Now, I feel more knowledgeable.
