Research has shown that breastmilk has superior health benefits than formula. However, poor latch or supply can make breastfeeding challenging for many mothers. A careful evaluation of the breastfeeding issue with an experienced professional can often lead to resolution of the difficulty.

Sometimes an underlying medical condition like acid reflux or breathing difficulties in the infant needs to be treated for improvement.
