Providing support and advice to nursing mothers throughout their breastfeeding journey

About Katie & Nursing Mama

Ever since I was small I knew I wanted to be a mother. I have always had a love for kids, particularly babies. So, when the time came to choose a career, Nursing stood out. I started my General Nurse training in St James’ in 1999, but quickly knew that Paediatrics was where I wanted to be. I loved everything about Children’s Nursing but the babies was where I flourished. I loved the night shifts as you got more time for cuddles, feeding, etc. I’ll be honest, I saw few mothers breastfeeding at that time.

The man that holds my family together💜

I am honestly so lucky to have met him almost 11 years ago.

He literally runs the show at home and even more so since Covid hit.

We would be lost without him, so to all the dads(of every kind) out there, I want to wish you a Happy Fathers day.

To all the families without their dad's today, I know it's a time of rememberence. Sending you all the hugs and love💜

Honestly weaning can be so challenging for Moms.

We never expect it to be as hard so it can really knock us when we do.

I really struggled when weaning Tom even though I was so ready. I had the guilt over stopping even though I knew it was right for me at the time.

When is the right time to stop? Only you can answer that.

Whether you breastfeed for 1 day, 1 month or 1 year you are a Breastfeeding Mom and celebrate your experience.

Prepare yourself, your emotions may be all over the place when you stop. Be kind to yourself.

Have you weaned? How did you manage?

Not everything has to be textbook perfect especially when it comes to breastfeeding.

What works for one Mom & baby may not work for another.

Dont fix whats not broken!

I probably used the cradle hold mostly on the first 3 but loved the laid back with jack and still do!
