Breastfeeding and pumping provide lifelong benefits for both mothers and babies, and Dayton Children’s is committed to promoting, protecting, and supporting breastfeeding and lactation. 

Dayton Children’s lactation specialists are registered nurses or registered dietitian nutritionists with special training to support moms, babies, and families to meet their breastfeeding and lactation goals.  Our lactation specialists are all International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) or Certified Lactation Counselors (CLC). 

Lactation support is offered in our outpatient lactation clinic, at Dayton Children’s Pediatrics, and in all inpatient areas including the newborn intensive care unit and pediatric inpatient units. 

other specifics to note before scheduling an appointment:

  • When scheduling, please put in your child's name for an appointment with one of our specialists. If you have multiple infants, please schedule each child individually.  
  • We request the breastfeeding or pumping parent also attend the appointment. 
  • Families can expect to spend up to 90 minutes with a lactation specialist to discuss medical and lactation history, complete a feeding assessment, and to discuss or try changes to help meet family goals.
