How to Breastfeed with Melissa K. Nagin

Learn about lactation consultant Melissa Kotlen Nagin, one of Howcast's breastfeeding experts, in this video.


I'm Melissa Nagin, I'm a Board Certified Lactation Consultant in private
practice in New York City. I have my BA from Skidmore College in Saratoga
Springs, New York. And I was trained as an International Board Certified
Lactation Consultant at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City.

I absolutely love what I do, I love working with breastfeeding moms, I love the puzzle,
I love the challenge but mostly I like seeing them achieve the goals that
they set out to achieve. A lot of moms will start out saying, "I can't do
this, there's no way. It's not working for me," or, "It's not going to work for
me." And to see them at a year saying, "Oh my G**, I need to wean this baby,"
when they thought they wouldn't make it beyond day one is such a pleasure
to me.

I've been featured in magazines such as American Baby, Parents,
Parenting and I was the expert reviewer on the Essential Breast Feeding Log
by Suzanne Schlosberg and Sarah Bowen Shea. If you're having any breast
feeding questions, concerns, or problems you can always find me on Facebook
or you can Google me. I'm easy to find.
