Lactation Consulting
Breastfeeding is good for mother and child and can be a joyful bonding experience. By breastfeeding, the mother provides vital nutrients & antibodies to her baby, and breast milk is easier for babies to digest than formula. PineyWoods Pediatrics supports breastfeeding mothers with expert advice from certified specialists.
