Breast and nipple infections
Oversupply or low milk supply
Chronic breast/nipple pain
Skin conditions of the breast
Poor weight gain
Tongue-tie, lip-tie treatment (frenotomy)
Assessing for medical conditions that affect feeding, e.g. prematurity, low/high tone, muscle tension, etc
Dr. Chan can also work with your lactation consultant to diagnose and treat medical issues that they may identify in their course of work.
