Read Colette’s interview on the Milky Way Blog to learn more about her background and motivations!
“Colette’s advice and encouragement helped me to stick with breastfeeding despite my initial difficulties with engorgement, a variety of latch issues, and plugged ducts. She has been such a positive influence through this often discouraging process, and without her support I would have given up and switched to formula long ago. Now my baby is 5 weeks old, my supply is up, and I am much more optimistic that my baby and I can make this work.”

“Colette has been a huge help as I’ve learned the ropes in breastfeeding my first child. She helped me with latch issues, sore nipples, clogged ducts, and milk blebs, and she cheered me on through the stressful first weeks of feeding. She answers questions promptly and thoroughly, with great warmth and clarity, and she backs up her answers with excellent explanatory material. My son is now seven weeks old and growing like gangbusters, and breastfeeding is no longer a source of stress for us.”
