Leah-
Just a note of thanks as Kinsey and I reach our one year “nursaversary”! We have nursed all over the place from Grand Central Station in NYC to Disney World. As I reflect on what an amazing year this has been I can’t help but be filled with gratitude for all the help we received in those early and stressful days. With your help I went from low supply to a freezer stocked with over 1000 oz of breast milk when I returned to work. I was even able to donate a little.
You do amazing work! I am so fortunate to have met you!
Thanks once again,

Without the technical help with positioning and latch from Leah, I am sure that my early days of breastfeeding my first son would have been much more difficult. She was able to instill confidence in my ability to breastfeed my baby at a time when I was unsure and almost ready to give up! Leah’s encouragement and support was a crucial part of my success in exclusively breastfeeding my first son for 18 months!
 
At the advice of my amazing BABES lactation consultant, Leah Jolly, I took a nursing vacation! I stayed home from work Wednesday – Friday, stayed in my most comfy clothes on the couch with my sweet sweet baby, and we nursed, nursed, nursed, on demand, as often and long as she wanted, while we watched Netflix, all the way through the weekend. I rededicated myself to taking my vitamins and supplements on time, and upped my water intake significantly. By the time I went back to work on Monday, everything was back to normal, and has been for the last month! Yaaaay! And we’ve been nursing happily ever after since then! Can’t thank BABEs enough! Leah…you are amazing!

Leah and Misti were such a help in figuring out why I was having so much nipple pain while breastfeeding my 5 day old baby. They spent a lot of time with me exploring all of the different possibilities of what could have been causing the pain. I never felt rushed, and it was obvious that they had a true passion for helping mothers breastfeed. Once the problem was recognized, they gave me practical solutions to address it and answered all of my questions. My pain level improved immediately and continued to improve over the next few days. Misti and Leah were extremely encouraging, supportive and knowledgeable, and I wholeheartedly recommend them!
 
Misti gifted my baby and I the surreal thrill of breastfeeding. At birth my sweet baby was reluctant to latch. Misti taught us both how to latch and love it. Misti also saved my milk. With a little of her advice, after a sudden and severe loss of milk, my supply is back. Today, as a working mother, my baby enjoys both the boob and the bottle and moves freely between them. There is not a single feeding where I don’t think about the amazing Misti.

A few short weeks after having my son I began to struggle with breastfeeding. I contacted Misti with my concerns. She gave me many helpful tips to make breastfeeding easier as well as more enjoyable for both my son and I. Misti also gave me the much needed encouragement I was looking for! She reassured me that I could do it! Through the many struggles I have had with breastfeeding from latching issues to milk production questions she has been there to inform me and encourage me. My son will soon be four months old and he is a happy breastfed baby! Thanks so much for all your help!!!!
