COPA Offers Lactation Support for Breastfeeding Moms

Breastfeeding is the best start for you and your baby. But, it’s also common to have questions, concerns or problems with breastfeeding. If you feel a bit overwhelmed and need some help, COPA is here for you. We have certified lactation consultants in both Bend and Redmond that are available by appointment. They’ll ensure you feel comfortable with your newborn, listen to your concerns and tell you what to do.


Feel free to contact our Lactation Consultant if you’re experiencing any of these problems.

o You and/or your baby are having a hard time with breastfeeding.
o Your breasts or nipples hurt, you have an infection.
o Your baby is not gaining weight very well.
o You are worried about how your baby acts during or after feeding.
o You are worried that you might have too much or too little milk.
o Your baby is refusing the breast, or refusing the bottle with breast milk.
o Your doctor or your baby’s doctor sends you for help.


At your appointment, your Lactation Consultant will evaluate you and baby to help find solutions to the problems. She may use any of these tools to assist you:

o Watch your baby breastfeed and offer help with positioning and technique, if needed.
o Show you how to tell when your baby is latched and feeding well.
o Put a finger in your baby’s mouth to check your baby’s suck and mouth structures.
o Weigh your baby before and after breastfeeding.
o Help you with breast pumping.
o Offer written instructions and support numbers to call when you need help.

Prepare for Your Consultation
Dress comfortably and come as you are – pajamas and all, If you have questions about your bottles, nipple shields or pump please bring them in. Our lactation room has nursing pillows available for use. Bring your feeding or diaper diary if you have it. Mostly, just be yourself and let us help you and your baby.

To schedule your lactation support appointment, call 541-383-6313. Lactation appointments are at COPA’s Northwest Crossing Location in Bend and in our Redmond clinic on Larch Avenue. They are about 60 minutes long.
