CHKD’s breastfeeding medicine program offers services designed to identify and treat feeding challenges of both breastfeeding mothers and their babies. Our medical team includes pediatricians who are specifically trained in breastfeeding medicine, along with access to pediatric ear, nose, and throat specialists and CHKD speech and occupational therapists.

During appointments, mothers and their babies are each registered as patients and seen together. Our goal is to create a comprehensive plan to meet the needs of everyone involved. Before being evaluated by our team, babies must have been seen by their primary care provider after birth.
