Breastfeeding is more than just feeding, the wise know

Welcome to my site dedicated to breastfeeding and contact parenting. I am happy to be your guide... 

Breast milk is perfectly balanced so that your baby benefits as much as possible. It is easily digestible for the immature digestive tract of newborns and infants, and it also contains antibodies that help strengthen the child's developing immune system. These important substances are called prebiotic oligosaccharides, which serve as food for the friendly bacteria that live in your baby's intestines. These bacteria strengthen the intestinal mucosa, which is then more resistant and easier to defend against any unwanted bacteria. It is important to know that the quality of the composition of the intestinal microflora also affects the child's immunity. 

Breast milk contains unsaturated fatty acids, which are important for the proper development of your baby, especially from the point of view of the nervous system. 

Why breastfeed for a long time? 

  1. Breastfeeding is a natural and irreplaceable way of feeding a child.
  2. Breast milk contains all the nutrients and antibodies your baby needs. Depending on the age of the child, the composition of the milk changes, thus ensuring the healthy growth and physical development of the child. 
  3. Breastfeeding contributes to greater protection of your baby from respiratory tract infections, otitis media and intestinal problems. 
  4. Research also shows that breastfed babies are less prone to obesity, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and high blood pressure problems as adults. Breast milk is free and always available at the right temperature! 
  5. Breast milk is free and always available at the right temperature! 
  6. During breastfeeding, endorphins, which are also called happy hormones, are released in your body; also with their help, a strong emotional bond is created between you and your baby. This also contributes to your better mental well-being.
  7. Breastfeeding mothers have a lower risk of breast and ovarian cancer as well as osteoporosis. 
  8. Breastfeeding helps the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size more quickly and reduces the duration and intensity of postpartum bleeding.
  9. Breastfeeding can help you shed the pounds you've gained. 
  10. Breast milk is immediately available, whenever and wherever you are - and you don't have to sterilize the bottles all the time! Breast milk is always at hand, sterile and at the right temperature.

The success of breastfeeding also depends on the support of your family and immediate surroundings and on your desire to breastfeed your baby. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months of age. 

About me 

I am a certified lactation consultant with two associations dedicated to training those interested in breastfeeding. In addition, I provide legal advice in the field of science and research. Last but not least, I am a mother of breastfed children. I focus on providing high quality services to my clients. Thanks to many years of experience and an individual approach, I am able to provide the best service for your specific situation.


Personal meeting 

  • At the beginning, I will ask you about your child's feeding progress so far and I will be interested in what you might need help with. We will create a plan to discuss together..
  • Let's look at joint breastfeeding. I will show you the possible breastfeeding positions, explain the correct latching, and explain how to find out if your baby is getting enough milk. 
  • I will help you with what you are dealing with during breastfeeding. Depending on the circumstances, for example, I will show you what to do so that the baby does not starve, that the baby latches on, gains enough weight, how to solve nipple or breast pain or dissatisfaction during breastfeeding. 
  • Together we will go through the factors that can make breastfeeding worse. If necessary, we will look at the appearance of wounds on the nipple or the condition of the child's oral cavity. Together we will talk about removing obstacles to breastfeeding. 
  • I will answer your questions about breastfeeding. I will explain your child's behavior during breastfeeding. 
  • I will suggest ways to improve breastfeeding and we will solve the necessary tools for breastfeeding. 
  • We will schedule another meeting together where we can find out together which recommendations are working for you, what has or hasn't improved, what is or isn't helping you and what you should improve in order to be satisfied with breastfeeding. We will also discuss any other breastfeeding questions you may have.
