Triangle Lactation Consultants is a home based business in North Raleigh, North Carolina, operated by me, Ann Conlon-Smith, board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and leader of a breastfeeding support group for over 15 years. Most importantly, I am the mother of six sons, all of whom were breastfed, including my youngest, twins.
I have been passionate about breastfeeding for 22 years since I nursed my first child. The health benefits for mother and baby are magnificent, the bonding is incomparable and a breastfeeding mom is empowered for life! Breastfeeding moms are connected to their babies in an amazing way and get to know their baby's every need. Breastmilk is a living substance and changes according to the way a baby sucks, the age of the baby, the time of day, etc. No formula in a can, on a shelf does anything like that. It is, what it is. Formula fed babies have more frequent ear infections, higher rates of childhood cancers, more respiratory infections and diarrheal illness, lower IQ scores, and other disadvantages than breastfed babies.
Not all breastfeeding experiences are perfect from the start and sometimes devices and/or intervention can make a huge difference. Working moms benefit greatly from the use of a good double electric pump. We can help you with most breastfeeding difficulties either with a consultation or by offering the pumps and accessories, pillows, slings, herbals, and books we carry.
Breastmilk is the perfect formula! Snuggle up, nurse your baby and know that you and he/she were made for each other!
