Elly’s Testimonial of the ‘Milk Matters’ consultation with Suzy Lane – The Baby Expert

'Milk Matters' - Bottle Refusal in detail
Suzy arrives in the early morning and spends a little time with the breastfeeding mother, if requested, to offer advice around expressing milk etc. There is also a respectful introduction to your little one. When your baby shows clear signs of hunger Suzy offers the first bottle. She will need to do this once the breastfeeding mother has left the home. This is the ideal time for mum to go for a spa treatment, see friends or spend quality time with an older sibling. The person chosen to be coached takes on the overall care of your baby. It’s quite possible that Suzy stays overnight, sometimes a little longer. The whole consultation is completely baby-led. Suzy keeps a particularly attentive eye on your baby’s physical and emotional well-being. She is keen to respect your little one’s emotional needs whilst gently encouraging bottle feeding. She will keep you updated, almost in real-time, so that you are well informed of feeding and sleeping events throughout the consultation period.
Once your baby has bottle fed with the family member, Suzy provides a summary of the advice offered and leaves your home. The text support service starts so that you can update Suzy on progress made and benefit from her advice and support for a further 7 days.
Please note: Once the booking is confirmed, Suzy will assess your infant’s feeding history. An extended in-home consultation may be necessary when there has been a feeding trauma (tongue-tie surgery, reflux, prolonged bottle refusal, allergies etc.). If your infant has experienced any of these please do not hesitate to discuss this with Suzy and she may advise you to consider a more in-depth ‘Milk Aversion’ consultation.
The in-home consultation fee applies for consultations that take place within a 10-mile radius of Stamford, Rutland. For other areas, please give your postcode, (full address if located outside the UK), and check travel time/cost with Suzy.
The Milk Matters consultation is designed solely for the purpose of creating positive bottle-feeding associations in a healthy, breastfed baby. For your baby’s emotional well-being, any other concerns such as sleep issues will be addressed at a later date.
The fee is calculated on the basis that Suzy is a working guest in your home and you are respectfully requested to provide food, parking, and accommodation for the full duration of the consultation. If you have limited sleeping space, please call Suzy so that she can work with you to find a solution.
