"Seeking out help from Leslie proved to be very valuable. I regret not doing it sooner!" - Erica, Metuchen, NJ, June 2018

"Leslie was the fourth lactation consultant I saw after my preemie was born at 33 weeks. The others were supportive and encouraging while I exclusively pumped for 10 weeks, but Leslie helped me actually get my daughter nursing. She recommended an evaluation for tongue/lip ties which ultimately led to a corrective procedure with a great doctor. She also got me feeling a lot more relaxed about nursing and taught me about laid-back positioning. With Leslie’s guidance I started doing more relaxed skin-to-skin time with my baby, which seemed to stimulate her to start latching and nursing. I had been so close to giving up before that. Leslie is obviously super passionate about helping moms. I recommend her without hesitation. She made a huge difference to my family" - K.D. Franklin Park, NJ, May 2018

"Leslie was relatable, knowledgeable and very supportive. I really enjoyed our first visit together and look forward to meeting with her again soon." - Selma, East Windsor, NJ, April 2018

"Leslie is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about breastfeeding. She was the first person to mention that our infant may have an issue with regard to tongue tie (without diagnosing, of course). Without Leslie, we would have never known why he has so much trouble breastfeeding. We wish we sought her help weeks ago! Indeed, our pediatrician confirmed that he does have a tongue tie. Leslie was so helpful and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for lactation support." - Suzanne, Robbinsville, NJ, March 2018

"She is amazing!!!!! She makes you feel like family! So knowledgeable and truly cares. I can't believe how thorough she is. Leslie stayed with me for 3 hours to answer my questions and educate me on so much. My baby had a tongue tie clipped so there was so much to go over. She showed me breastfeeding positioning, weighed my baby before and after feeds, discussed my pumping needs, and even the types of bottles and nipples to give my baby since I am at work now and don't want breastfeeding to be interrupted because of it. She provided me with a wealth of information from the time I contacted her.  She gave me more resources on the day of our visit that pertain specially to my babies needs.  Leslie then provided me with a detailed summary of our visit and follows up frequently.  I can tell this is truly her area of expertise and she is truly passionate about it and her clients. I would recommend her to everyone and will keep in touch for all of my lactation needs. Yes you can share my comments. It will be valuable for people to know what a blessing she is." - Anonymous, Hamilton, NJ, February 2018
