Breastfeeding Your Adopted Baby – It is possible to breast-feed your adopted baby!  For parents wanting to give their babies the benefits of breast milk and the bonding and unequaled nutrition breast feeding provides, inducing lactation and re-lactation is possible.

One of our consultants, Susan VanSyckle, is a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and also serves adoptive mothers desiring to breastfeed.  Feel free to contact her directly for more information:
