Forms

Before your virtual consultation, please fill out medical history forms. This is best done from an iphone, ipad, laptop, or desktop. 

Make sure your baby will be hungry

It is important that baby is hungry at the beginning of the virtual consultation. Feed your baby about 2 hours before the start of the visit and do not feed again until the virtual consultation begins. 

Keep records

If possible, it is helpful to have a 24 hr record of feedings (breastfeeding and/or bottles and supplementation devices) and wet and dirty diapers.
