Bayou city breastfeeding will be the best decision you will make for you and your baby!After seeing Suzanne with Bayou city breastfeeding, I truly feel like having an experienced lactation consultant lined up before (or as soon as you can!) you give birth is possibly the most important decision you will make for you and your baby, probably AS important as choosing a pediatrician.Suzanne managed my baby’s wounds after having tongue/lip tie surgery. She taught me how to do exercises so that his wounds would heal properly and we could avoid needing a revision. She taught me positions for feeding him that helped relieve back pain and tension in both me and my baby post csection and frenectomy. She referred my baby to cst and chiropractics because she noticed that he was holding tension in his body that was preventing him from achieving a good latch and feeding with ease. She showed me how to pump and manage supply effectively, prevent mastitis, and prevent reflux in my baby. After my baby healed post surgery she helped both of us achieve a latch without using a nipple shield. She also would weigh him before and after feeding to make sure he was getting enough milk.During this time I was extremely stressed and exhausted post csection while taking care of a tired and cranky post surgery baby. Suzanne was SO incredibly kind and understanding and did not lend one hint of judgement when I showed up in mismatched T-shirt’s and sweat pants, barely awake, and not thinking straight.***She supported me and my baby through the beginning of our breastfeeding experience and made it go from a anxiety filled experience with tears from both me and baby while feeding —> to a SPECIAL and enjoyable bonding time that I get to have with my baby. ***These positive outcomes are just a FEW of all the things I learned from bayou city breastfeeding. If I did not have Suzanne with bayou city breastfeeding, I would have stopped breastfeeding after two weeks and my baby would not be receiving the nutrition he is now which is so incredibly important amid the pandemic.I cannot express how much you need one of these experienced lactation consultants in your life!

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!

We have made so much progress thanks to Karen! I started out with low supply and a tongue tied baby who was not gaining enough weight. It has been a multi month journey of LCs, PTs, ENTs and pediatric dentists. Karen’s help was instrumental in building and establishing my supply as well as improving latch and transfer. Do not wait to address feeding issues. The in home visits have been game changing - much more effective than the hour long appointments at the hospital or pediatrician’s office.In addition to being a wealth of information and support on breastfeeding, Karen also provided physical therapy exercises for us to do between sessions to help with breastfeeding.Karen is also a wealth of information about parenting having 3 kids of her own and is very sympathetic to the realities of being a busy mom. She is always patient and makes sure our questions are fully answered. Highly responsive through the bayou city breastfeeding messaging portal between sessions.

I can't recommend this place enough. I met with Suzanne with my newborn son when I was having severe pain with latching. Suzanne was so helpful in helping...

I am on my third baby and all of them have had tongue ties and lip ties. It wasn’t an easy process at all. The dentist that did my second daughters tongue tie reversion did a great job with giving me information and how it effects everything your body does but there was no work a head of time and only 1 follow up appointment. Because of COVID I didn’t know what to do about my baby boy hurting me while nursing. A friend told me to look at bayou city breastfeeding so I made an appointment and man has it changed my life! Not only do they take insurance which is amazing, but the knowledge that they have is abundant! Also it is so so easy to get in contact because you can text at anytime and you will receive a response pretty quick! If all that wasn’t enough they are there for every step of the way to make sure you are ready for the procedure to going with you to the appointment and then follow ups! I truly am so thankful for bayou city breastfeeding. They help you with way more then just getting your child to latch properly! They want both the baby and mother are happy and healthy. I would refer anyone and everyone to them!

Suzanne here at Bayou City Breastfeeding has been such a great help to me and my babe! I’m only 3 months into breastfeeding and without her knowledge and help I wouldn’t have made it this far on my own. Everyone I’ve spoken to at there is super nice as well; very sweet staff.

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!

Bayou City Breastfeeding is great. They started helping me over the phone right the way when I called to inquire and schedule the appointment and any time I have a random question I can text them and they reply on the same day. The insurance covers the visit, which is a plus. I chose the home visit and for that I just have to pay the trip charge. They were a life saver and I don’t know if I would have been successful at breastfeeding if it wasn’t for their help. Nicole is amazing and helped me not only with the techniques but also with the whole concept of breastfeeding, bonding and being emotionally well. I absolutely love them and recommend them to all of my friends!!!
