Hello! My name is Britt Pados and I am neonatal nurse practitioner and certified lactation counselor in Wellesley, MA. I have a PhD in nursing where I studied feeding infants with medical complexity and have extensive experience in the neonatal intensive care unit caring for infants born prematurely or with special medical needs. In my practice at Infant Feeding Care, I provide trauma-informed, non-judgemental support for breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, growth-monitoring, and management of reflux, colic, and gastrointestinal issues.
