Help Once You are Home
If you are having difficulty with breastfeeding once you have left the
hospital, you can call the Saint Barnabas Warm Line (973-322-5684). The
Warm Line is a dedicated phone line that is monitored by certified lactation
consultants. It is designed for non-emergent breastfeeding questions that
can be answered during regular business hours. If you have a question,
day or night, call the Warm Line and leave a confidential message and
phone number. A lactation consultant will return your call during the
next business day. If you have an emergent breastfeeding question, please
contact your child’s pediatrician. If you would like to meet with
a lactation consultant once you are home, you can contact
NewBornMom Breastfeeding Solutions.
NewBornMom Breastfeeding Solutions has provided help to moms and babies
for over 20 years. Through private, one-to-one consultation, an IBCLC-certified
lactation consultant can help prevent problems and provide new moms with
the breastfeeding experience they envision. To learn more or schedule
an appointment, visit
