Meet Tracy de Jesus RN, IBCLC, a registered nurse and international board-certified lactation consultant.

Our Lactation Service team is made up of a team of registered nurses who are all international board-certified lactation consultants.

Breastfeeding your baby

After your baby is born, your milk should come in about three to five days after delivery. Mothers who have had a C-section will find that their milk is delayed coming in by at least one day.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for six months, then continued breastfeeding while gradually introducing solids until your baby is one year old, and then as long as mutually desired by mom and baby after one year.
