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.

Feeding a baby is not always intuitive. I offer a variety of classes and facilitate free support groups to help you find your way.  Visit my class calendar to secure your spot today!

About a Home Visit

Learning to feed your baby is

an individual experience.


I come to you in the comfort

and privacy of your own home. 


Our visit is relaxed. 

I have 2 hours to hear your story

and get to know you and your baby. 

We figure out the issues

and together we create a plan.

Home visits are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Virtual Lactation visits are available!
