Our schedule from July 6, 2020 to July 12, 2020
I would definitely recommend Lactation Consultants of Central Florida. Amy was extremely helpful during a challenging time in any mom’s life. She’s very knowledgeable, supportive, and kind. It was also wonderful to have someone to call or text at any time with breastfeeding questions. I wasn’t able to breastfeed my first son but have been able to do it with my second!
I recently had a wonderful experience with Amy Bassett, CLC. She came to my house in Winter Haven to work with me and my 5 1/2 week old daughter. I have been having a lot of soreness and pain, and felt like we were having latch issues. I wanted so desperately for breast-feeding to work, and was beginning to become disappointed that it might not. She worked with us so patiently and kindly, and never made me feel stupid or inappropriate. She was supportive and funny, and made me feel so very comfortable. She gave me several great tips and tricks, and it really made a world of difference. Our nursing time is now so much better. My daughter is doing well and I’m loving our bonding time. Amy saved us! I am so very thankful and appreciative of this kind woman and her professionalism. Thank you Amy!!
I reached out to Lactation Consultants of Central Florida when my 11 week old daughter abruptly stopped nursing – going through what is called a “nursing strike.” Amy is professional, caring, and so talented!! On top of making you feel totally at ease, her compassion and patience is incredibly helpful during such a sensitive time as a mother. She truly works from a place of love and her constant support was indescribably helpful during such a challenging time as a new parent. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone in need of breastfeeding guidance and support. You are not alone in this journey!!
Words can not describe how priceless having a lactation counselor come to your house the first week or two after having the baby is. Amy came to my home when I was 15 days postpartum. Baby and I were doing pretty good to just OK nursing. I was having a problem nursing on my left. It was much more uncomfortable because of a shallow latch and the way I was holding the baby. Neither one of these issues really stood out to me. It was the lactation consultant who noticed that I was holding baby just slightly different with my left than my right. This prevented the baby from getting a deep latch and nursing well. She showed me how to sit more comfortable and how to hold baby and relax my shoulder. She spent about an hour, slightly more maybe, showing me how to nurse and troubleshooting issues. She told me about breast shields for my pump that are more ergonomic for comfortable pumping. She weighed the baby before and after nursing to see how much milk he was transferring. She wrote down all the key points of our visit with some tip to try. I’m very thankful to Amy for helping me and teaching me how to better nurse my baby. We just celebrated 6 months of exclusively breastfeeding! I honestly don’t think that we would have made it this far without Lactation Consultants of Central Florida’s help. THANK YOU, AMY!!!
Worth every penny! Renea was patient, helpful and very knowledgeable. I felt as ease breastfeeding my son after she left. Highly recommend her services. She was able to meet with me within 24 hours of my request and we met on a Saturday. Do not hesitate to call!
My son and I had a painful start with breastfeeding, so I reached out to Amy. She came out to our house and worked with us on getting a good latch, shared positioning tips, and answered a ton of questions.
We are going strong on our breastfeeding journey thanks to Amy. She’s been a great resource when questions have come up and is really supportive. I highly recommend her to any mama needing help or reassurance!
I CANNOT say enough about Lactation Consultants of Central Florida! Amy is THE REASON why I am still breastfeeding at 8 months – a goal of mine that I didn’t think I was going to meet.
I have been super impressed with the depth of Amy’s knowledge base and the way that she backs up her advice and guidance with research-based techniques and approaches. She also makes a point to answer questions and schedule visits in a very timely manner. Most importantly, Amy makes you feel totally comfortable, no matter where in your breastfeeding journey you might be.
