Lactation Consultation


Enjoy customized support in the comfort of your own home from a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Counselor. Boston NAPS offers a variety of customized visits offering breastfeeding support, pumping education and even newborn care.

We customize every private session to address your primary needs and concerns, whether it’s improving your latch and breastfeeding technique or a longer visit with tips for soothing, bathing and sleeping.  

I cannot recommend Boston NAPS enough! Their support and expertise during the first couple months home with my infant was invaluable. After leaving the hospital, I had little confidence in my breastfeeding future. But after two visits with Boston NAPS I got the knowledge and confidence I needed to successfully feed my daughter.
