Michele Dwyer, RNMany aspects of breast-feeding come naturally to mother and baby, but there can be challenges. New moms may benefit from seeing a lactation consultant or a specialist in breast-feeding medicine, an Upstate program that accepts patients from anywhere (call 315-464-2192 or click here for more information). Nurse and lactation consultant Michele Dwyer, above, says she encourages moms to set aside their cellphones and look at their babies while breast-feeding. She also explains how dad or another support person can be helpful to new moms.
