I am so thankful that I was referred to BCB from a pediatric dentist in the area. He recommended that I visit the Kingwood office for a combo visit which includes ~ body work (with a chiropractor) and also a session with the lactation consultant. My... daughter who was scheduled to have her oral restriction (tongue tie) remediated demonstrated a painful latch, weight loss at 10%, etc. After several combo visits and some lactation only visits, we fell into a groove with nursing and at 3 months we have not had to follow through with the remediation surgery. I highly recommend BCB. All of their staff is phenomenal.read more
I found Bayou City Breastfeeding about three years ago. Suzanne helped me with my daughter to ensure my desires of breastfeeding my baby were met. She not only showed me techniques to help with her latch, she also recommended certain things I had no... idea about that would help my BF journey. I’m so thankful for her help I was able to BF my daughter for 15 months before she (daughter) decided she was ready to be done. I am now back at BCBF with my new baby who has had latching issues and again Suzanne is there to help me with all her knowledge and amazingness! I definitely recommend Bayou City BF!read more
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.read more

So extremely happy with the care, bedside manners, and patience with Karen Swan! I was hesitant when I first went because breastfeeding is an entire journey on its own. But after my 1st visit, I was so extremely happy and relieved I had someone who... listened and helped me with this journey! I went in feeling 100% defeated (and exhausted) and walked out feeling confident and empowered. Only thing I would have done differently was not waited so long to make and appointment! LOVE THIS PLACE!!! LOVE Karen!

We love Kathy and all her tips and knowledge are very helpful as we manage our newborn.
The ladies (Karen & Suzanne) at Bayou City Breastfeeding have been a godsend. They immediately made me feel welcomed and comfortable. They’ve taught me SO much about breastfeeding that I had no idea about, despite all of my “internet research”. My... son had a tongue/lip tie revision that reattached. I’m amazed by the work they put in to work with the pediatric dentist and the family to provide the best care for the best outcome.. without them my sons tie would still be reattached & we’d be right back at square one. I also have to say, Suzanne works so hard with making sure families can afford lactation services from providing the grant program to working with insurance companies. My family cannot say thank you enough to these ladies for helping with our breastfeeding journey.read more
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!!read more
Suzanne is incredible. I don’t live in the Houston area anymore but I still do virtual consultations because they are THAT good. Highly recommend.
