Painful Nipples and Breasts+
Sore nipples are relatively common for mothers that are breastfeeding for the first time. Nipples soreness can be caused by many factors such as poor positioning, shallow latch, tongue or lip tie, or breast pump trauma. Painful breasts can be caused by engorgement, plugged ducts, mastitis, or yeast infections. I have extensive experience in all of these areas and more. At Tender Lactation Care, I provide lactation consulting to help mommies breastfeed their babies successfully. As a registered nurse an registered lactation consultant with more than 28 years of experience, I strive to meet each client's individual needs. Contact me today at Tender Lactation Care if you are experiencing sore nipples or painful breasts.
Tongue Tie and Lip Ties+
Tongue tie and lip ties are common reasons for nipple soreness. There is immediate relief available so that you can continue to breastfeed. If your nipple looks flattened after nursing or has abrasions, it is possible that your baby is tongue tied. Call me at Tender Lactation Care and let me help you improve your baby's latch and refer you to a pediatric dentist if tongue or lip tie revision is necessary. Don't wait until you are ready to quit! The sooner you call, the sooner we can solve the problems. Contact your breastfeeding nurse today at Tender Lactation Care, and I will help you through the journey of breastfeeding your baby.
Yeast Infection Treatment+
Sometimes painful nipples are caused by yeast infections. Moms who have had C-sections or are GBS positive can be more susceptible because they have had antibiotics during or after the birth of their baby. That is also true if the mother had antibiotics during her pregnancy or is prone to yeast infections. The yeast protocol that I use is very effective, so if you are having painful, itchy or blanched nipples or deep burning pain in your breasts give me a call as soon as you can! I want to be your Lactation Consultant and help you get past the yeast infection so you can breastfeed comfortably and successfully!

I called Lois a few days after leaving the hospital in total desperation. I was hesitant to find someone on the internet and then make a home appointment. I shouldn't have been. Lois is a totally professional. She quickly determined why we were having issues and gave me information and some alternatives to try. She did baby's measuremens to truly understand how bad the situation was and to make sure baby was healthy. Lois is patient, kind, knowledgeable and truly is passionate about breastfeeding and helping moms. You will not feel judged or anything but warmth and kindness. If you are having problems Lois can quickly access the and give you some guidance.
Lois was amazingly helpful! She has several years of experience and a lot of knowledge to pull from. She also sent me home with articles that helped me further understand my baby’s and my nursing challenges. I left the appointment feeling empowered to be able to better feed my baby. Lois also was great about answering my questions afterwards over phone calls. She’s the cheapest around. Excellent experience. I’d recommend Lois to everyone.
Lois was so very helpful. I am a new mom and had a lot of questions. She didn't make me feel like I needed to know all the answers. She was very nice to talk to and she is so fast at responding to you.
Lois was so amazing! I felt frustrated and fed up with breast-feeding, but Lois has a wealth of knowledge and experience and she was really able to help me out. I left her appointment feeling empowered and hopeful about feeding my baby.
