Breastfeeding Center

Peconic Pediatrics is distinguished for its breastfeeding and lactation resources. We offer in-office consultations with Dr. Jennifer Shaer and Dr. Lisa Visentin, board certified pediatricians and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.

  • We also offer home visits, anywhere across Long Island, for your convenience and comfort. This has been an invaluable resource to new moms in those sleepless early days!
  • Breast pumps and other supplies are also available through our office. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing or renting a breast pump.
  • Peconic Pediatrics is the first Suffolk County milk depot for the New York Milk Bank.
