7. What do I need to prepare before a lactation appointment?

Because the whole purpose of an appointment with a Lactation Consultant is to evaluate how your baby is feeding it is important to try and ensure that your baby is ready to feed when you arrive for the appointment. In order to achieve this please try feed your baby 3 to 4 hours prior to the appointment. This may mean that you will need to adjust the feeds in the 12 hours leading up to this time. If your baby wakes and is hungry before you leave for your appointment PLEASE DON'T FEED YOUR BABY! I know this is really hard but if you use a dummy and try sooth your baby back to sleep then you can start feeding as soon as you arrive for the appointment. You are your baby will benefit the most if the entire feed can be observed.
