Help breastfeeding: Lactation consultants are trained to help identify problems with breastfeeding, either mom- or child-related. They can help with technique, latching, treatment of nipple problems, assessing adequacy of feeds and milk production, use of breast pumps (if needed), and are just generally good education and support resources for helping moms and babes get the whole breastfeeding thing rolling!
