  • Foods weighted to determine milk transfer
  • Feeding Strategies to Promote Successful Lactation
  • Establish good milk production
  • Manage nipple pain
  • An oral assessment to identify a possible language connection is also provided.

They will also cater to infants with poor or slow weight gain, producing too much or too little milk, breastfeeding prematurely and/or multiple infants, learning to pump, transitioning to labour, plan treatment of engorgement, clogged ducts, thrush or mastitis and reestablishment of milk supply.

The center also offers free weekly in-person and virtual support groups. All breastfeeding topics and issues are included in group discussions.

The 2022 opening of the Anne Vogel Center was an initiative by Monmouth Medical Center to reach customers in suburban Eatontown, as parent company RWJBarnabas puts family health services right where consumers live, shop and take their children to school.

That’s why the Anne Vogel Center has expansive gynecology offices, infant and pediatric health offices, a test kitchen featuring Jon Bon Jovi nutrition education programs, and now, a breastfeeding center. An offshoot of the Children’s Specialty Hospital occupies the second floor.
