Babies can be fussy – but your breastfeeding journey doesn’t have to be
As much as you’d like it to be, breastfeeding isn’t always straightforward. Undersupply. Oversupply. Plugged Ducts. The challenges you face as a breastfeeding mom can feel never-ending.
If you feel like it should be easier, you’re in the right place. From first latch to last, you can be confident in your breastfeeding journey.
Breastfeeding can Suck (or not suck enough…)
The public milk leaks. The nursing strikes. The sore nipples.
If you’re a mom parenting in this century, you’ve spent hours of your time with Dr. Google trying to find solutions to your breastfeeding challenges. Tell me, during your chats with Dr. Google, did you find a lot of conflicting information? Solutions that just didn’t address quite what you were going through?
The internet is flooded with misinformation when it comes to breastfeeding. This is why The Breastfeeding Mama was born – to give you personalized, expert guidance on YOUR breastfeeding journey.

I’m Katie, aka, The Breastfeeding Mama
When I tell you my breastfeeding journey wasn’t easy…I mean it. The nursing struggle was real.
Low milk supply. Clogged ducts and mastitis. Slow weight gain. Tongue ties.
You name it, I probably went through it with my second child.
But, I was determined to educate myself in every way I could so I would have the best chance of getting this breastfeeding thing ‘right’. This took me on a massive journey which led me here. I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant to give other mamas the help I wish I’d had.
Trust me when I say I know what it’s like to struggle.
