Feeding Problems and Lactation Support
Nothing is more frustrating than experiencing difficulty in performing what should be the most basic act of parenting: feeding your baby! The truth is, it is not always as easy as it seems. Even bottle feeding can be hard at times. We are here to listen to each parent’s concerns and create individualized lactation support solutions. Our neonatal nurse practitioners and support professionals will make sure that you are able to achieve your feeding goals with your child.
Foster children and those who have been adopted may have a history of negligence and abuse. If so, they may need specialized healthcare treatment. At Pediatric Health Specialists, we ensure that the best foster care needs, including behavioral health, research, child welfare, and pediatrics, are given to foster children. Our health experts are dedicated to providing your child with care coordination, developmental support, and referrals to specialists as and when needed.
Several unique challenges come with infant adoption, and one of the most important is ensuring their access to quality healthcare. At Pediatric Health Specialists, we bring together the best health experts and caregivers to ensure your child’s health and safety. We will navigate your child’s special needs and will be advocates for their journey toward good health.
Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, can be challenging as it can cause difficulty in breastfeeding your child. It is a condition where the tongue is attached to the floor of your baby’s mouth with a thin strip of tissue, preventing it from moving freely. While in some cases, a baby can outgrow this condition on its own, at other times, this syndrome can be significantly difficult, and that is where we come to help you out! We can assess and correct the issue through our special procedure of frenectomy, which can help release the tongue. Don’t hesitate to call us for evaluation if you think your baby is facing similar issues.
