REAL success STORIES.

Alli and Larry Bowers

Finding The Lactation Network felt like striking a goldmine of knowledge and help. My consultant reached out to me within a day (as TLN notified me she would!) and our consult left me feeling validated and hopeful after she was able to identify my baby’s needs and how to address them. I have told all of my fellow parent-friends about TLN and encouraged them to get connected as well. I am looking forward to my follow up with my consultant after implementing the actions we addressed. I know that my baby and I are both in better shape to continue our breastfeeding journey after utilizing TLN.
