Breastfeeding & Lactation Consultation

Maple Kidz Clinic is proud to be a source of breastfeeding expertise, both with latching and feeding assistance as well as medical management of breastfeeding dyads. We provide non-judgmental, evidence based advice to meet your feeding goals in a way that is supportive and acceptable to you and your family.

Dyads can be seen with valid health cards and with a referral for the breastfeeding infant directed to:
DR. POOJA PRABHU
Please fax referrals to 905-303-3035

We believe that the breastfeeding dyad is a unit, so we evaluate and advise on problems that arise and affect either member of the breastfeeding dyad – parent or infant.

Common breastfeeding concerns:

* Learning when your baby is drinking from the breast.

* Breastfeeding premature babies, multiples, twins

* Nipple pain or breast pain, getting a pain free latch!

* Making your feeding sessions more efficient

* Block ducts, blebs, mastitis

* Slow weight gain

* Baby fussing at the breast: pulling off, biting , arching or refusing to latch.

* Is your baby gassy? Colicky?

* Non-latching baby

* Low milk supply or oversupply

* Breastfeeding after breast augmentation or breast reduction

* Supplementing, finding the right method to protect your breastfeeding relationship

* Pumping when returning to work

* Relactation and induction of Lactation without pregnancy (same sex parents, surrogacy or adoption)

* Prenatal appointments
