Our little rosebud was ready to meet the world and arrived just about a month early, tiny and fierce! She had one night in the NICU to stabilize her blood sugar where they gave her formula along with my breastmilk. Upon discharge, my pediatrician told me that the only way he would feel comfortable with me cutting the formula from our baby’s diet is to work with a lactation consultant: In came Suzanne!
As a first time mom I had no clue what I was doing, but as a dietitian I knew breastfeeding was the ideal option for me and my baby and that I’d do whatever it took to make it work. Suzanne helped us navigate, overcome, and truly thrive through our baby’s low birth weight, a tongue tie, a poor latch, food allergies, and everything in between. I looked forward to our weekly visits and all of the knowledge and insight I’d gain. I would have been lost without her and would have never been able to sustain breastfeeding on my own. Suzanne really was and is our lactation superstar!
Through this experience we not only have a super healthy and thriving little lady, but it has also opened new doors for me professionally as I help other mothers struggling with food allergies and baby’s first foods. I honestly cannot say enough amazing things about Suzanne and about Bayou City Breastfeeding. With a second baby on the way I feel much more confident and ready to take on any and all bumps along the way knowing I have such an amazing team of lactation consultants behind me to support!
