    hi there new to the list. to become a lactation consultant, you must log 2500 hours of hands on experience with breastfeeding dyads if you have a BSN, orbachelors degree, or 4000 hours if you have an ADN or associates degree. there are ways you can get out of some hours. you can contact the IBCLE or check out their website:

    IBCLE
    7309 ArlingtonBlvd
    Suite 300
    Falls Church , VA 22042-3215 USA
    1-703-560-7330
    ibcle@erols.com
    www.ibcle.org

    other than the hours, you have to sit for an exam that is only offerred once a year the last monday in July.

    Good luck! All Nursing mothers need support form breastfeeding suporters!!! Andrea
