What We Do
The Breastfeeding Program at SickKids is a team of Registered Nurses and Lactation Consultants specially trained to provide lactation support to families with sick infants. We help moms who are having any complications surrounding pumping or breastfeeding. We are available only to families of patients who are admitted at SickKids. Our program is available Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If your child is currently admitted at SickKids and you require lactation support, please ask your nurse to call in a referral or you can call 416-813-5757, option #2 and leave a message including:
- Your baby’s full name, ward and room number
- The reason you require a consult
- A phone number where we can reach you
We will try to see you as soon as possible. If you leave a message after 3 p.m., we will likely have to see you the following business day.
If your child is not currently admitted at SickKids and you require breastfeeding support, please contact your birth hospital or go to www.ontariobreastfeeds.ca to find lactation support in your area.
