Welcome. I'm so glad you're here.
Welcome to Arlington Lactation & Feeding Therapy, your one-stop shop for judgement-free feeding support for your newborn, infant, and toddler.
I'm Susan Howard. Registered Nurse. Lactation Consultant and Mom. My mission is to help the whole family thrive while meeting their feeding goals.
I offer compassionate, evidence-based feeding support.
I specialize in complex feeding situations at the breast, the bottle, and the table. My expertise includes tongue ties, feeding difficulties, slow weight gain, low-milk supply, and bottle-refusing babies.
Arlington Lactation is synonymous with providing the most comprehensive and quality care to mothers and babies. Complex feeding situations are my specialty.
If you suspect a tongue tie, have milk supply concerns, or difficult feedings, I can help. My goal is to provide compassionate, evidenced-based feeding support to help soon-to-be, new and seasoned families blend the art of nursing with the science of feeding their child.
If you enjoy learning about the 'why' as much as the 'how' when it comes to feeding, we will make a good pair.
I am skilled at virtual visits and I am looking forward to working with you!
Classes and Group Support
Feeding a baby is not always intuitive and we were not meant to have babies in isolation. I host a FREE virtual support group on Wednesdays and Thursdays - The Feeding Flock. The 1st and 3rd Sunday sessions focus on the unique challenges faced by working breastfeeding moms. Register today!
I offer a variety of classes to help parents along each leg of their feeding journey. Popular classes include:
Wondering about Weaning
Breastfeeding the Second Time Around

Learning to feed your baby is an individual experience
I believe that babies are hard-wired to breastfeed, that mothers are strong, amazing women, and that feeding your baby can be the most fulfilling and rewarding aspect of parenting when we overcome the factors causing you stress and pain.
