About Newborn Feeding
At Village Pediatrics, our team of skilled experts works with new moms to provide effective newborn feeding information. For breastfeeding newborns, we offer lactation assistance, including latch techniques and information for a healthy milk supply. For moms who are formula feeding, we provide guidance for determining the best formula for your newborn, including if an alternative form of formula, such as soy, may be better for treating colic. While new moms can get this assistance through the hospital they delivered at, you can also ask for a referral during your child’s well-check visit at our Plano, TX facility. Contact Village Pediatrics today to learn more or to schedule a consultation.
"Dr Okammor is amazing our first visit was completely different from another doctor's office we went to. The people that work there are awesome. We love her nurse she always has laughing every time..."- V.A. / Yahoo / Feb 16, 2019
"My son has gone to Dr. Okamorr since he was 6 months old (he is now 14 years old) and at every appointment, I have always felt he is well taken care of. Dr. Okamorr has excellent bedside manners, always listens to him, and has always provided the right treatments and medicine he needs. I never struggle to make appointments, staff is friendly and kind, and the wait time isn't more than 10 minutes. I highly recommend Dr. Okamorr as your child's primary care physician. They will be in excellent hands."- E.M. / Google / Oct 05, 2020
"My daughter is age 6 and has been going to Village Pediatrics under the care of Dr. Okammor since she was an infant. We have been pleased with the service from the doctor to the nurses, and office management. My daughter has never been afraid of going to see the doctor."- D.G. / Google / Sep 18, 2020
"We were able to get an appointment the same day. We were seen by the nurse partitioner in a timely manner and she took her time with my 2 yr old son- which I really appreciated. We didn’t have insurance so we paid out of pocket which wasn’t as bad as I thought. Overall I would recommended them to my family and friends."- B.T. / Google / Sep 18, 2020
"This was a fantastic experience online! Dr. Hebbur has been our pediatrician for 10 years and I am very happy with her. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and incredibly patient and friendly. She is a critical thinker and explains everything in a calm manner. She really is an amazing physician and caring friend!"- L. / Office Visit / May 01, 2020
It is important to note that not every brand of formula is right for every child, which is why you should call our office and ask for assistance before switching formulas. We find that many times parents switch formulas several times before they reach out to us and ask for help. However, switching formulas, or even transitioning from breast milk to formula, requires further planning and guidance.
Another point to stress would be that it’s totally normal for babies to cry, and they may not always be hungry every time they cry. Overfeeding the baby can actually have detrimental consequences and will cause further harm. It’s also important to also keep a calm environment around the baby, as they can sense when their caregiver is anxious and will become even more irritable.
We always encourage moms to contact our Plano, TX facility if they have any questions or concerns regarding feeding.
