Hey there

I’m Lauren, owner of Grow Baby Nutrition + Lactation.


And I'm so happy you're here!

First of all - i'm a mom

Just like you! I may grow babies for a living, but I honestly struggled to figure out how to grow my own. When I became a mom the 
“textbook answers” I learned in my training became so much more real. So I here I am, bringing you evidenced based support with practical application. All from a momma who has been there and done that!

I'm a dietitian

A Registered Dietitian with Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition at that. I spent the first 5 years of my professional life growing the tiniest of babies in a NICU, and got to follow them outpatient once they went home too.

And a lactation consultant

After 5+ years working towards my experience hours, and taking a gruesome test. I passed my boards and am officially an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant {or IBCLC}.

my mission is to help you feed baby with confidence

Seriously  though, I LOVE growing babies. 

I’ve been professionally growing babies since 2015 in both a hospital and the community. It is my JAM. When I had my son in 2017 I thought it would be a breeze, I was a Baby Dietitian after all, I knew everything, I would not have any problems…

Welp, that was a funny joke. 

Those first couple of months were the most challenging I’ve ever been through. I could not have survived if it wasn’t for my wonderful Mom Squad. 

As a Baby Dietitian, my Mom Squad was composed of mostly other Baby Dietitians and Lactation Consultants, which is basically like the Dream Team of Mom Squads when you’re trying to Grow Baby. 

I am forever grateful for those women that not only possessed expertise knowledge, but also the “been-there-done-that” knowledge. 

And that, my friends, is why I am here. To be a part of your Mom Squad and help you make confident and informed decisions in growing your baby. No matter how you chose to feed your baby, I got your back and I can’t wait to cheer you on! 

xoxo, Lauren
