My son nursed for almost 15 months, and my daughter, who is almost a year, is still almost exclusively breastfed. Despite the fact that I’ve surpassed the national standard, it wasn’t easy with either of my children. It’s resources like Milkalicious that provided education, support, and encouragement when my daughter had reflux and slow weight gain.
Milkalicious was founded by mother and lactation consultant Jennifer Ritchie “to provide community-based, long-term support for breastfeeding mothers.” The company functions as both a retail shop and a resource for breastfeeding advice, support, and education via consultations, classes, and free workshops. Jennifer’s personalized approach means nursing mothers can seek support after hours (because everything is always worse at 3 am!).
Some of the services offered at Milkalicious include personalized in-store, in-home, Skype lactation consultations, Nursing bra fittings, breast pump rentals and sales, breastfeeding and baby care classes, and free breastfeeding workshops For more information about the services offered at Milkalicious, just visit their site.
