The Breastfeeding House 211 Babcock Rd, Ste B San Antonio, TX 78229
Know who to bring:
If you want us to observe a feed, bring your baby willing to feed (not super hungry and not super full). This can be easily managed by either:
• choosing a consult time slot that coincides with a feed time
• snacking baby midway between feed so they aren’t too hungry when you arrive at the consult
• offering the day’s feeds earlier or later to fall into a cycle that works with our appt time
• if you aren’t driving, bring a bottle with you to feed small snack amounts in the car on your way to our office
Your Support People
Parents and family-members are always welcome in our office *if mom allows* them. Because our consult space is cozy, we limit guests to mom+2 and have the expectation that whosever attends with mom is also there to learn from us and be supportive to mom.
Doulas, midwives, and other birth professionals accompanying a mom for the purpose of observing a consult, should schedule professional observation hours with us separately.
We welcome children of all ages with proper adult supervision. If needed, we have a comfortable space where caregivers and siblings can hang out while mom is being supported.
Wi-Fi is available.
Know what items to bring:
If you pump and/or bottle feed bring your pump, and empty bottle and a full-feed’s worth of milk.
Also, bring varied pump flanges should you wish to be have your size fitted.
Bring all pacifier types you use, and/or other bottle styles you have and would like to use.
There are nursing pillows at the clinic should you need one.
Please don’t bring your germs 💜:
We do not currently enforce masking because we trust our clients to not come if there is illness in the family. However, we have masks at the practice and can wear them when a family also wears them.
If you or anyone in your household is knowingly sick with anything (not just COVID), we greatly appreciate you rescheduling until everyone at home is 100%.
One sick baby, mom or family member could expose dozens of moms and babies, lower supply for those who get sick, and/or cause us to close our practice to the community while we recover.
Please, please, please do not come in if you or yours aren’t feeling well.
Due to space limitations, we ask that you leave your stroller in your vehicles, unless they collapse into a car seat.
Our main clinic office has about 5 steps to access our lobby. Our back entrance has 3 steps to access our office.
If you or your guests need a flat entrance and/or a fully accessible consult space, please let us know *at scheduling* so that we may open an adjacent yet fully-accessible space on the property.
To avoid having to walk near the street to access our office porch, please park in the driveway/on the rocks nearest our office porch, which is on the west end of the building:
