Baby's WEIGHT GAIN is one of the biggest stressors for new breastfeeding parents. Since there is no gauge on the breast, many parents wish for the peace of mind that comes with having a measurable indicator of their baby's intake.
During an in-person lactation consultation, we do a weighted feeding so we can measure exactly what your baby took in during a feeding.
