Meet Your Instructor

Hi! I’m Larissa O’Loughlin, RN, IBCLC, CCE, CPST, Certified American Heart Association CPR Instructor, and owner of The Mama Coach – Westchester, NY.

I provide parents with qualified infant feeding support and education through in-home lactation visits, virtual feeding consultations, and online courses and workshops. My passion is helping parents meet their feeding goals while also focusing on their mental health and sustainability of feeding routines.

I created this course to take the mystery out of pumping, bottle feeding, and formula. The vast majority of infants in North America are taking at least some or all of their feeds with a bottle – parents deserve quality education about these topics without judgment!
