Preparing For Your Office Visit

Most Importantly

Bring your baby! And wear comfortable clothing with easy access for nursing.

The 24-Hour Count

It’s helpful for your lactation consultant to know how many wet and dirty diapers your baby has had in the past 24 hours, the number of times she has nursed, and if baby has received any supplemental expressed breastmilk or formula.

Weight Measurements 

Please bring a list of as many official weight measurements for your baby as you can get. If you’re a Kids Plus patient, we’ll already have those in our records. If you’re not a Kids Plus patient, you’ll need to call your pediatrician to get that information.


If you have a specific pump question, please bring your pump to your appointment; if not, you can leave it at home.


If you’re using any breastfeeding gadgets, such as a nipple shield or Supplemental Nursing System, please bring them to the appointment.
