Newborn Consulting

This visit is designed for parents to have an RN visit them during their first days or weeks home from the hospital.

This 2 hour visit allows for ample time to ask questions and for hands on learning with your baby. The visit will start with discussing your feeding choice and the best practices and recommendations as it relates to your choice. If you are breastfeeding, we will do a pre and post feed weight, observe a feeding, and provide feedback and support regarding positioning and latch. If you are breastfeeding and pumping, or exclusively pumping, we will show you proper set up, use, and cleaning of your pump and its parts, as well as safe storage of breastmilk and when and how to introduce a bottle. If you are bottle feeding, we will discuss safe preparation of formula or donor breastmilk, proper bottle feeding techniques, and amount to offer at each feeding based on child's age and health history.

The second half of the visit will then be dedicated to discussing normal newborn behaviors, healthy feeding and sleeping schedules, when and how to introduce a pacifier, soothing techniques, and hands on practice of bathing, swaddling & soothing techniques, filing and clipping nails, diapering, and much more! Parents often create a list of questions that they have, as the first week home is very new and exciting, but does come with many questions. This visit provides you with the opportunity to ask those questions to one of our RNs who specializes in newborn and postpartum care.
