Chapel Hill Pediatrics and Adolescents will partner with you to meet your breastfeeding goals. Many of our pediatricians will help you directly with breastfeeding problems, and ALL of our pediatricians encourage breastfeeding and work closely with local lactation consultants who are readily available.
Most of our physicians are able to observe breastfeeding and help with any nursing difficulties. You are welcome to schedule a breastfeeding appointment regardless of who is your primary pediatrician.
We also recommend speaking to one of our advice nurses if your adult physician has prescribed your medication and has told you not to breastfeed while on the medication.
