About Katie & Nursing Mama

Nursing Mama started out offering Breastfeeding Preparation classes locally in the Kildare area. Due to Covid, all support services for new parents stopped and so Nursing Mama moved online. The Newborn Care class was then created to support, educate & empower parents in Newborn Care. The Weaning Class quickly followed due to the increasing number of clients seeking help to stop Breastfeeding and has been very popular to date. Nursing Mama offers in person consults within Kildare, Dublin and online Worldwide.

Stopping breastfeeding was one of the hardest parts of breastfeeding on my 3rd baby.

Tom never took a bottle. He loved the boob but I knew it was the right time for us to stop. Tom had just turned 1, I felt ready, but I had no idea how to do it. I googled,I asked friends and colleagues, and most replies were ' just leave', ' let them cry', eventually they will feed a different way. This was not the way I wanted to end our feeding experience.

I just knew there had to be a better way, and so my research began. We know breastfeeding is not just about nutrition but comfort, too. If your child had lost their soother or teddy, you wouldn't just let them cry it out! You would try to replace it with another form or comfort.

Responding to your babys emotional needs is so important.

Join my Weaning from Breastfeeding workshop to learn how to stop breastfeeding in a gentle way for both you & baby. Live Q&A at the end, which allows you to give a snippet of your situation, and I will give you tips and advice specific to you.

Just to clarify, I am not recommending this for every feed.

The HSE clearly states that making up every feed indivisible best practice.

This is purely for a top-up bottle where the volume can change and leads parents running short and may end up skipping steps making up next feed as baby is looking for more.

Ensure good clean hygiene standards are met for making and storing bottle.

No bottle should touch baby's mouth and be kept afterwards

This is only for well, past term infants.

Hope this makes it clearer.

How to reduce your waste of formula when using top ups!

Many parents will opt for a ready-made formula, which is amazing but can be expensive.

Here's what you need to know if using a powdered formula to top up with.

Many parents make up more than required, and this leads to a huge amount of waste, so here's a simple tip for you!

Make up 1 or 2 full bottles of formula-
Fill the kettle, boil,wait for 30 minutes to allow the temperature to drop to about 70 degrees, and then add top sterile bottle. Add correct amount of scoops of formula to water ratio. Swirl to dissolve the powder in water. Cool rapidly, and then you can store in the fridge for 24 hours .

It is important that the bottle is made up and stored correctly and only lasts for 24 hours and discarded if not used.

Use this bottle to pour into a separate bottle for the top-up.

Hope you find this helpful!
