Kaylan & Travis’ Breastfeeding Story

Since that first appointment with our consultant he has been thriving and I’m able to successfully breastfeed my baby.

My husband and I were blessed with our healthy 8-pound baby boy, Travis. Soon after delivery we worked on getting him to latch to start nursing. Right from the start he didn’t eat very well and would want to sleep instead of eating. He began losing weight and we were having to go to the pediatrician every 3 days for a weight check. They were telling me to supplement with formula every other feeding to try and get his weight back up. He had lost a pound and I was about to just give up breastfeeding. I was so stressed and upset that I was failing my baby. I wanted to give him the best nutrition and benefits and longed for that baby/mommy bond from breastfeeding. My mom found Bayou City breastfeeding online and we got in touch with a Lactation consultant right away. They talked to me that day on the phone for about 45 min trying to help me and my son. I booked an appointment and that’s when things started getting better. We met with Suzanne, our consultant, and within 5 minutes of looking at Travis she knew why we were having problems. She found he had a posterior tongue tie and lip tie. She advised us to the best specialist to take him and get them released. She helped me build a pumping routine and a feeding schedule that helped my milk come in (that I followed diligently). Since that first appointment with our consultant he has been thriving and I’m able to successfully breastfeed my baby. I’m forever grateful for Suzanne and Bayou City Breastfeeding.
