Can I make enough?! This is a very important topic that I hope everyone reads & discussed with their physician, family & friends. The more support & encouragement the better! Here we cover topics, tips of the trade from other mothers, CLEs & IBCLCs, things to know regarding breastfeeding in the first couple days, during the first month, and on. Here you can find different breastfeeding positions, ways to breastfeed w/inverted nipples, baby friendly hospitals, preemies & possible need for supplementation, and most important…how Dad can help & support his breastfeeding mama! 20 years ago, it was very common to automatically think you gave formula, regardless of the amount you made, you just gave formula. Well Breast IS Best! So educate yourself & get prepared for breastfeeding!
Thank you so much Katie for being so supportive, knowledgeable, & encouraging when I came to you freaking out about my little boy not latching right. You calmed me down, reminded me this is what my body is suppose to be doing, and reminded me how tiny my son’s stomach is at 5 days old. 1 month later, my son is breastfeeding perfectly, growing like a weed, and I’m loving every second of it. You’re such a blessing! Thank you!

Katie, thank you so much for all the encouragement and support during my first few days of breastfeeding my little girl. As a first time mom, I had no idea what to expect, thanks to your advice and help, my little one is breastfeeding like a champ and I’m confident and comfortable she is getting the best nutrition possible.

Thank you for all your advice and nutritional support Katie! I had gestational diabetes and was nervous because I’ve never had to worry about my diet, let along follow a diabetic diet. The greatest thing you gave me was encouragement and reminded me that I’m not alone and that I can eat healthy for my pregnancy and growing baby inside of me.

I’ve never had to watch my weight, even after my first child was born, the weight just came off. After my second child was 3 months, and I was exclusively breastfeeding, the weight was not coming off. I was worried. Katie shared her non-diet advice with me... Not only will my body and mood be changed by feeding it rich nutrients, but she reminded me that nourishing myself is just as important as nourishing my new little girl with breastmilk.
