Visiting our clinic is more than just a quick weigh
Experience has taught us that getting breastfeeding off to a good start is not always as simple as it should be – hence it is advisable to feed the baby at the clinic for professional assistance in achieving a good, deep, pain free latch.
We like to see our newborn babies between day 3-7, however if there are latching problems or pain it is advisable to see these mothers and babies as soon as possible.
We advocate skin to skin for all our newborns. There are many positive benefits but it ultimately leads to more successful breastfeeding outcomes and a stable, happy newborn baby.
We weigh, measure and examine each baby and observe a feed. Milestones are checked and referrals are made to appropriate professionals if needed, e.g. paediatricians, chiropractors, dieticians, occupational therapists etc.
