Do you have a few questions about your baby and breastfeeding that don’t necessarily warrant a full 60-90 minute consultation? For those small issues or quick questions you may have, I offer a “mini-consult”. This 30 minute or less consult, I can answer any questions you may have about any topic that pertains to breastfeeding, pumping, back to work issues, weaning, etc. We can either chat by phone or virtually on your computer. If your issue is more complicated than a phone call and further evaluation is necessary, I will suggest we schedule a longer consultation. This mini-consult is for parents with questions that do not require a full assessment, but would like professional advice and assistance with breastfeeding.

I first met Dee when she worked at a small-town hospital where I delivered my first child. I was very worried about nursing and when people asked me if I planned on nursing I would always give an unsure, “I’m going to try.” In my mind, nursing was something only a few people’s bodies were capable of doing and I wasn’t sure I was going to be the lucky few. I had heard other people share their experiences and when I heard most bottle-fed their babies…READ MORE
Dee Miller. Auntie Dee to our little girl. I honestly would not have survived my first 3 months of mommy-hood without Dee. Dee not only took care of our baby; she also took care of me. EVERY session (without exaggeration), I’d leave feeling much better than when I came. For the brand new Mom’s, you know how much of a blessing that is. I looked forward to “Dee” time! Dee would see us every week for months as my LO was pretty strong willed, and she’d rather sleep than eat. She dropped as low as the 6th percentile in weight. With the help, guidance…READ MORE
I’m super thankful for Dee as she is a very essential part of my breastfeeding journey. After having an unplanned c-section and a traumatic birth experience, I was super worried about breastfeeding my little one as my milk has been very slow to come in. Dee provides very clear, concise, and thoughtful care that will cater towards you, your baby, and any unique situation that you may have. I left the hospital with thoughts of giving up but because of Dee, I am committed to making progress and continuing my breastfeeding journey… READ MORE
The connection I had with Ms. Dee was beautiful. She was very patient and was just as excited as I was starting my Breastfeeding Journey. I never felt uncomfortable. She was always positive and made me feel good about every situation that came my way. She was the only person who kept me in good spirits when everyone else told me to give up…READ MORE
Working with Dee was a wonderful experience. I had a scheduled c section, so I set up an appointment with Dee 2 days after I returned home from the hospital and I’m so happy I did. She came to our house and worked with us in our own environment, providing solutions and help when we needed it most. We had several problems, including a tongue tie. I truly believe Dee’s expertise and experience saved our breastfeeding journey…READ MORE
It’s 3 AM, and I’m rocking my beautiful baby girl in AGONY, sobbing, because I am in so much pain and she’s hungry! I feel like an absolute failure and worried I won’t be able to continue my breastfeeding journey with my first baby who is less than a week old. I am googling Lactation Consultants, and I come across Dee. I read some reviews and sent her a message immediately begging for her to come over and help me ASAP! I saw her schedule was booked till the following week but I couldn’t take it any longer!!! Dee squeezed me in and drove straight to my house a couple days later, giving me tips on how to survive the 2 days…READ MORE
I had my daughter in June 2020. Here we are 18 months later and still breastfeeding! It all started with Dee taking the time to help me learn to help my daughter latch and always reminding me I was producing enough for her. Dee is so patient and was always willing to answer my questions. I’m so thankful for her help in those first few weeks, from help in the hospital to weighted feeds to several phone consults. If it weren’t for her I probably would have quit in those first few days, but her support helped me persevere and I’m so thankful I did. READ MORE
Dee, where do I begin? She is a superhero in our family! I met Dee when taking the breastfeeding class offered at the local hospital in 2018. I knew breastfeeding was something I was going to do, but I was leery of the process. Right away after delivery Dee was gently by my side coaching me on how to latch our tiny girl. I gained so much confidence with nursing my 5 lb 5 oz newborn. Nursing a tiny baby with low weight takes consistency…READ MORE
Words cannot begin to express how grateful I am for Dee. As a new mom, trying to figure out the mechanics of breastfeeding while watching my baby cry from hunger and continue to drop weight was not something I was prepared for. Dee was always accommodating to my needs and the needs of my newborn and if one technique did not work she knew exactly what to do next. She always made my son and me feel like we were a priority…READ MORE
