Get Breastfeeding Help

Breastfeeding is not always easy.  When things are not going the way you had hoped, The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic is here to help.  Established in 1984 by Dr. Jack Newman and located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the clinic provides breastfeeding care and support to more than 2,000 families every year.


The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic is a supportive, inclusive, safe, and judgement-free space.  When you come to the clinic you will have a one-on-one appointment with one of our extensively trained International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.  She will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and guide you in achieving an optimal latch and efficient feeding.  Your baby will be examined by one of our Pediatricians, including an assessment for tongue and lip-tie.  Together, your Lactation Consultant and Pediatrician will develop a unique care plan that takes into account your needs and breastfeeding goals.


The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic provides assessment, treatment, and support for any breastfeeding concern, including:

  • Fussiness or sleepiness at the breast
  • Frequent feedings
  • Long feedings
  • Low milk supply
  • Slow weight gain
  • Nipple pain and breast pain
  • Blocked ducts, mastitis, and breast abscess
  • Babies who are not yet latching or refuse the breast
  • Tongue-ties and lip-ties (assessment and treatment)
  • Inducing lactation and re-lactation
  • Breastfeeding an adopted baby or baby born by gestational carrier


We are happy to work with babies/toddlers of any age!

Breastfeeding Class

We offer prenatal breastfeeding classes for soon-to-be parents. Our focus is to get mothers off to the best possible start by providing comprehensive information on:

  • The physiology of lactation
  • The importance of skin-to-skin care
  • Care of the newborn
  • Evidence-based breastfeeding practices


This is a 3-hour prenatal breastfeeding class for mothers and their partners. The class is kept very small and is structured to facilitate questions and discussions. This class is intended for first-time parents or parents with one or more children.
