Our Miracle! Words cannot describe how helpful The Second9Months is! We had almost given up breastfeeding when my supply dwindled down to a measly 1.5 oz. a day at 4 months. But, her knowledge, kind words, and support, helped get my supply up (to a grand total of 10-18oz. a day!) ...Original recommendation
After my first child was born 3 years ago, he struggled to latch and I was quick to blame myself. Renee put my mind at ease and gave us the gentle guidance and support we needed. After a consultation and weekly support group meetings, my sweet boy figured it out and never looked back. ...Original recommendation
Renee was recommended to me by my doula. During the first week after birth, I was having issues getting my newborn to latch on one side. Both baby and I were getting very frustrated and crying a lot. Renee was able to see us in our house on the very next day and showed me how to properly latch and refine my technique. She was very thoughtful, supportive, and super quick to respond to phone calls and emails. ...Original recommendation
Several months after her birth, my daughter and I are still exclusively breastfeeding, which we owe all to Renee.Original recommendation
I called Renee at the recommendation of several mom friends, who said she is a well-regarded Seattle expert on breastfeeding. Later, I learned my pediatrician's office also regularly refers patients to her. She is very dedicated, replies promptly to messages, and will visit your home if needed. ...
Renee is the lactation consultant I am working with for creating breastfeeding content on my upcoming website, and had I known she existed when I had my baby I would have booked time with her before and after delivery. She can make the difference on whether or not you are successful with breastfeeding (i.e. the most important thing you can give your baby). Do yourself a favor and get a consulation with her.Original recommendation
