During the appointment, which is 45 minutes to an hour, specially trained lactation consultants observe and assess a feeding. Patients come to the breastfeeding clinics only to solve issues with breastfeeding. All other medical and developmental issues with the child are referred back to the child’s pediatrician. The Breastfeeding Clinic is available two days a week by appointment (please call). Patients must contact their obstetrician or pediatrician for a referral, which the physician can fax to 815-300-1063.
