Are you a new postpartum mom struggling to find yourself amid extreme fatigue and sleep deprivation?

Do you find yourself rocking your baby late at night, googling to see if your baby’s sleeping, eating, and pooping are “normal” - and finding yourself even more confused?

Do you worry that you’re doing everything wrong as a new mom and wish you could trust that you are the best mom for your baby?

You’re in the right place. Say goodbye to the late-night panic searches about sleep patterns and nursing questions, and welcome to the New Mom Naturopath podcast!

In this podcast, we’ll explore how to find - and feel like - yourself again in the busy, beautiful world of being a new mom. I’ll answer your postpartum questions about sleep patterns, nursing and feeding, caring for your baby, yourself, and your needs.

I am Dr. Kailyn Galloway, a mom and naturopath who loves everything postpartum. My son was diagnosed with clubfeet while I was pregnant. He was a healthy baby, but my postpartum experience was nothing like I thought it would be. Despite my education, I still felt anxious about whether I could be the mom my son needed me to be.

To find peace, I tried everything - researching, meditating, and journaling. No matter what I did, I worried I wasn’t enough. But here’s the thing: postpartum anxiety is a reality for many, and it’s okay to feel overwhelmed. You’re not alone. Through focusing on my mental health, doing lots of research, and trial and error, I was able to create a practical plan for post-baby life that worked for me. And now I’m excited to share it with you!

If you want to feel calmer, more patient, and confident as a mom...

If you’re interested in practical stress-reduction techniques that fit your hectic schedule…

If you want to understand your body’s changes in postpartum, use that to be more energetic and attentive…

Then you’ve found your sanctuary in the New Mom Naturopath podcast.
It’s
Grab a snack and lots of water—a nursing cover is optional—and let’s discover how to be the mom you’ve always wanted to be.

    108 | From Sore Nipples to Purple tongues: 6 common Breastfeeding hurdles and what to do about them.

    Welcome to the New Mom Naturopath Podcast! In today’s episode, we dive deep into the world of breastfeeding, specifically tackling some of the most common challenges that new moms face. Whether you’re dealing with a baby who won’t latch because of tongue tie or you’re experiencing the painful reality of thrush, this episode is here to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to overcome these hurdles and continue your breastfeeding journey with confidence.
    Segment 1: Understanding Tongue Tie
    What is Tongue Tie? 
    We explain the medical condition known as ankyloglossia, how it can significantly impact breastfeeding by restricting the tongue’s movement, and why it might be the culprit behind your breastfeeding difficulties.
    Signs and Symptoms: Look out for issues like difficulty lifting the tongue, a heart-shaped tongue tip, or a clicking sound during nursing—these could all be signs of tongue tie.
    Impact on Nursing: Understand how tongue tie can lead to sore nipples, low milk supply, and even affect your emotional bonding with your baby.
    Getting Help: We discuss how to seek a professional diagnosis and the benefits of procedures like frenotomy, as well as why post-procedure care such as chiropractic or craniosacral therapy can be beneficial.
    Segment 2: Dealing with Thrush
    Identifying Thrush: Learn about this common fungal infection, its symptoms in both mothers and babies, and why it's crucial to treat both to prevent reinfection.
    Effective Treatments: From Gentian Violet to antifungal medications, we cover all the bases, including preventive tips to keep thrush at bay.
    Segment 3: Resolving Plugged Milk Ducts
    Causes and Prevention: Discover what causes plugged ducts, like wearing a tight bra or infrequent nursing, and how to prevent them by ensuring proper breastfeeding practices.
    Home Remedies: We share simple yet effective remedies to relieve the discomfort of plugged ducts, such as massage, warm compresses, and adjusting your nursing positions.
    Segment 4: Addressing Baby Falling Asleep While Nursing
    Why It Happens: We explain why newborns often fall asleep at the breast and how this can be both a normal and frustrating experience.
    Keeping Baby Engaged: Tips for keeping your baby awake and ensuring they get enough to eat, from changing feeding positions to gently stimulating your baby.
    Segment 5: Managing Nipple Confusion
    Understanding Nipple Confusion: Learn what nipple confusion is, how it can happen, and its effects on breastfeeding.
    Prevention and Solutions: Strategies for preventing and correcting nipple confusion, ensuring that your baby can switch between breast and bottle without preference issues.

Estelle Avbuere ,

Impactful!

Dr. Galloway is literally impacting the world and women so powerfully! This is an amazing resource for women of all backgrounds!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge, experience, and expertise💜

Dont rely on app ,

Good info, not well polished

The information she presents is good, but it seems very informal and at times she doesn’t seem prepared with the content.

Brittany Poppe ,

Wow!

I am thankful to have found this podcast! I feel so much more equipped to handle my postpartum depression/anxiety. It is so comforting to know that I am no longer alone. Thank you, Kailyn!
