Feeding your baby is one of the most intimate yet challenging parts of being a new mom.
They say breastfeeding is “natural” but it comes with a boatload of challenges and questions. Is my milk supply enough for my baby? Can I switch to formula? Is my baby still hungry? Is this pain normal? Is my baby growing? Is it safe to mix breastmilk with formula?

It is not just the new mama who struggles during the very exhilarating, but also stressful, period of time after she and baby arrive home from the hospital or birthing center. Even seasoned moms sometimes struggle, especially when they encounter obstacles to nursing their newborn baby. It is for this reason that Baby Settler exists.
We want to join you on your breastfeeding journey whether you are a veteran or brand new mom. We want to help you succeed with breastfeeding by offering our practical advice and professional expertise tailored to you and your unique situation.
You might be wondering what a Certified Lactation Specialist is and what she is trained to do. This is a great question we get often. A Certified Lactation Specialist is a breastfeeding expert who has been trained to assist both mother and child in the breastfeeding process.
Breastfeeding is a natural experience, but it does not always unfold naturally. What that means is, your baby may latch onto the breast within minutes of being born, and continue to easily breastfeed in the coming weeks and months….,or you and baby might hit roadblocks immediately which make frequent breastfeeding experiences frustrating, painful, and even crushing.
A Certified Lactation Consultant knows the questions to ask mom and knows what to look for when evaluating mom’s and baby’s breastfeeding technique. She observes your baby hold during feeding, the positioning of baby’s tongue, and the mechanics of baby’s latch. Through patient assessment, she is equipped to offer advice so that the breastfeeding experience can become more fluid, and less stressful. Often, a slight adjustment can open the path to a future of effortless feedings.

Go from feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and in pain to feeling relaxed, confident, and comforted knowing your child is healthy and well fed.
