We’ve had the most amazing experience working with Rebeca Four! From our prenatal appointment (highly recommend doing this, first time mamas) to postpartum, I’ve been so impressed with the breadth of Bek’s knowledge. From advice on nursing and supply to tongue ties, Rebeca will set you up for breastfeeding success! She is a straight shooter and will give you all the tools to get where you want to be. She rocks. Thank you!!

Weaning Support Whether You Are Weaning Off of Pumping or Nursing or Both

  • Weaning can often be a hard subject for lactating parents.

  • The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breast or chest feeding for the first six months and then continuing to nurse along with complimentary (solid) foods for at least the first two years of your child's life or beyond. Though two years may seem like a long time to some two years is actually shorter than the average child nurses in most other countries around the world according to global statistics.

  • Whatever your reason for weaning, I am here to help you.

  • I will design an individualized plan to meet your specific needs and goals.

  • AETNA CLIENTS can use one of the 6 allotted consults for weaning support.
