Our specialist areas include:
- Breast & bottle feeding problems, including painful feeding, frequent or long feeds, slipping, clicking, milk supply, improving weight gain, very frequent feeding
- Reflux, colic & wind (unsettled infant(s))
- Tongue Tie/ Ankyloglossia
We focus on why something is happening rather than just medicating the symptoms. We take a full history and we listen – piecing together everything that has happened from pregnancy to our appointment, allowing parents to share everything in a non judgmental space.
We can help parents understand what their baby is trying to communicate and assess the baby’s feeding skills – if baby’s suck is disorganised a whole host of problems can follow. Alongside addressing the root of the problem, we support parents with practical help.
Milk also work alongside various other specialists as and when a case requires. They are chosen for their passion and skill in their field and show proven results. Look out for our “spotlight on” web profiles to introduce them to you.
