“It gives moms a chance to make sure that their babies are gaining weight because we don’t see how much milk goes in with breast fed babies. So seeing that number on the scale helps reassure them that the babies gaining weight,” said Certified Lactation Councilor, Rachael Birkenhauer.

Birkenhauer said that motherhood can be lonely, so the folks at T Muffin want to give moms a place where they can socialize with a community of their peers.
