Black Nurse/ Entrepreneur Helps 10,000+ Breastfeeding Moms


Riverside, CA — Krystal Duhaney, a Registered Nurse, is taking the breastfeeding world by storm with her delicious lactation treats. Also a Certified Lactation Counselor, Krystal created Milky Mama in 2015 after struggling with her own milk supply following the birth of her second child.

To date, Milky Mama has helped over 10,000 breastfeeding mothers increase their milk supply with their lactation treats and breastfeeding support. Milky Mama has also been raved about by celebrities such as Coco Austin (wife of rapper Ice-­T), Lauren London, Natalie Nunn, Jenna Jameson, and more.

After having her second child and returning to work, Krystal struggled with her milk supply and realized that there were very few resources for breastfeeding mothers in the same predicament. She knew then that she had to come up with a solution that would help to increase her milk supply!

Using her knowledge as a Registered Nurse and love for baking, Duhaney developed a milk-making cookie recipe and fell in love

with the results. This lactation cookies dramatically increased her supply. Soon after, she decided that she could not keep her discovery a secret and had to share this with other mothers who were going through a similar situation. So, in November of 2015, Milky Mama was born.

Today, Milky Mama’s product line includes All-Natural cookies, brownies (which are Krystal’s favorite), emergency brownies, lactation oatmeal, tropical iced tea, lactation lemonade, and lactation smoothie mix.

Along with offering tasty treats and beverages, Milky Mama has also generated a following of women who help support each other and other women on their journey. “It was also important for me to create a village of support, because I needed it and I craved it. Having the extra support is so vital. It is heartwarming and a huge passion of mine to give breastfeeding support. I receive so many responses from customers sharing their experience and because they eat my treats they are going strong with lactation. It’s so amazing what a little extra support can do.”

Milky Mama facilitates weekly Facebook Live Chats, a free support group that takes place every Tuesday at noon. Additional classes include Breastfeeding 101, Booby Traps: Overcoming Breastfeeding Challenges, All About Pumping, and more.
