Meet Bonnie Root, R.N., I.B.C.L.C.

bio-Bonnie-RootWith a passion for helping families thrive, registered nurse Bonnie Root is an international board-certified lactation consultant and feeding specialist. She supports families learning how to feed their newborn comfortably and confidently.

Bonnie sees babies and their parents during what she calls “a golden window” during the two weeks following birth, between initial pediatric appointments, and anytime during a baby’s first year, when feeding issues may arise. Highly skilled in all areas of newborn feeding, Bonnie offers education, tips and additional support throughout breastfeeding and bottlefeeding.

Bonnie says, “I am so fortunate to be able to support families in this way and help them gain confidence and knowledge, seeing their progress and victories—it’s incredible.”
