Ever thought of becoming a Lacation Consultant or anything similar??

Do you have to be a nurse to be a lacation consultant or lacation educator? What sort of education and certs are required? Are there any online options?

I briefly looked into it a while ago and you had to have 1000 hrs (i think) of working with lactating women before you could take the course or exams. Apparently actually lactating doesn't count, boo to them!
