Bottle Feeding Assistance

When looking for advice about feeding your baby you will find plenty of assistance with breastfeeding. If you have needed to or chosen to bottle feed your baby then you may not find the assistance you have needed. I believe that there are many solutions to feeding your baby and if you are using a bottle to do so, you deserve the same amount of respect and assistance.

Just because your baby is bottle feeding doesn’t mean that things will be easy. If you are needing advice then please book an appointment. I have a non-judgemental approach and a lot of experience with using bottles to feed babies. I have extensive knowledge on formulas as well as most brands of bottles and teats. Each baby has unique needs and some even require specialised feeding bottles.

I believe in being compassionate and honest, and will endeavour to make sure that feeding plans are realistic and feasible. I will take a comprehensive history to try establish the cause of the problems, and will tailor make a solution that fits your circumstances and goals.

Please call me on 0455 612 229. If I do not answer the phone then please leave me a message so I can get back to you as soon as I’m free.
