Here at Triad Pediatrics we offer special services for you & your family. If you have any questions about our services please feel free to give us a call


Lactation

Here at Triad Pediatrics, when it comes to feeding your newborn, we believe that ‘fed’ is best. Whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle feed, give pumped milk or formula, we are here to help you make the best choices for you and your baby and answer any questions you may have along the way. For those who are wanting to breastfeed but may be struggling to do so successfully, we have a certified lactation consultant who can provide support and insight to help make breastfeeding a successful and enjoyable experience. We have an exam room dedicated to our breastfeeding moms and lactation patients.

We keep a small stock of different supplies a mom may need to assist her in the process, whether that be nipple shields, larger pump phalanges, or soothing gel pads. Many times insurance will cover part or all of these items, making it little or no cost to you.

Nutrition

We are excited to have Heather Martin on our provider team. Not only is she a Certified Physician Assistant with over ten years of pediatric experience, she is also a Registered Dietician as well. Is your child a picky eater? Do you ever have trouble coming up with healthy snack ideas? Would eating out guidelines and on-the-go options be helpful when deciding how to feed your family in a healthy manner? What about regular exercise recommendations and strategies for limiting screen time and increasing active time? These are just a few of the benefits you will gain from a nutrition consult appointment.

These appointments can be a one-time appointment or more frequent and regular to allow for follow-up, accountability, and goal setting. In addition, your child and family may benefit from periodic nutrition classes offered by Heather.

Please call our office to schedule a nutrition consult with Heather or to learn more about these specific services.
