Chantelle believes that every parent should feed their baby in whichever way they think is best, and it is her mission in life to make sure mums have as much information as possible when thinking about breastfeeding. Milk It is her way of doing just that, and is written with the support and know-how of a certified lactation consultant to make sure it is as useful and up-to-date as possible.
In personal notes, Chantelle tells her own story of motherhood and breastfeeding, including the issues she experienced and how she ended up tandem feeding her twins after their premature births. Milk It shares other real mums' stories of breastfeeding, mental health and body image, so that you know whatever you choose and are going through, you are not alone.
Milk It is everything you need to know about breastfeeding - from a mum who knows.
Chantelle is originally from Canvey Island in Essex, and is a mother to three daughters; Dakota (5), and twins Tatum and Blakely (18 months). She started an Instagram account to document her pregnancy with twins, and having breastfed all of her children, wants to share years' worth of accumulated knowledge with the thousands of parents who have messaged her for advice.
Chantelle is a staunch supporter of mums feeding their baby however they feel is best. She is also an ambassador for the charity It Takes A Village, which aims to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, all over the world.
