I reached out to Jennifer Suffin after struggling with low supply and difficulties with breast feeding for the first 6 weeks of my daughter’s life. As a pediatrician, because I teach moms of my patients to breast feed, I never imagined it would be a struggle. After seeing two other lactation consultants and using all the tricks I knew myself, I still had to supplement my daughter with a few ounces of formula after every feed.
After spending only a few hours together, I felt more confident about breast feeding in general AND had a great plan on how I was going to increase my milk supply. Jenn’s recommendations worked great and within a week I was able to almost exclusively breast feed. I also felt continued support after our visit about any questions that had come up. For every question I had, Jenn had unique recommendations and information that made me feel like I had a great plan going forward.
It was obvious that she wasn’t an average lactation consultant – she had a unique combination of tricks up her sleeve which worked great in what seemed like a hopeless situation to me. I am still using some of her methods to keep up my milk supply now that I am back to work.
I would recommend (and refer my patients’ mothers) to see Jennifer to anybody who is looking for a high class lactation consultant. She will leave you feeling confident, supported, and capable of breast feeding your child.
