Mama’s Milkies ~ a new book illustrated by Katie m. Berggren

I am so honored to present the happy result of a project many months in the making ~ a new illustrated & published children’s book honoring a topic that is close to my heart… breastfeeding.

Mama’s Milkies is a children’s book about a full term breastfeeding child. The reader will follow the little toddler (painted as a gender neutral little sweetie in 12 full color images) through the day as they wake and play, read, sing and finally drift off to sleep. All the while knowing that mommy still has “Milkies” when they feel like nursing.

Here is a note from Stephanie Craft, the author of Mama’s Milkies:

“I hope that the lyrical text and Katie’s gorgeous illustrations find their way into your hearts and that you will enjoy reading it with your child. Whether they are still breastfeeding or not I hope that you find it brings a smile to your face and snuggles to your arms.”


It was a pleasure to create this book with Stephanie, her lovely words inspired me ~ and we carefully brought this book to life. The end result is a sweet little treasure.

For a limited time (through 2.14.14) the publisher is offering 14% off this book ~ Mama’s Milkies would make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your favorite breastfeeding couplet.


Originals Available: I will be offering the 12 original paintings created for Mama’s Milkies for purchase at 2 upcoming Virtual Art Openings (VAO). Virtual Art Openings take place on this page:

The first 6 paintings will be released at a VAO on Thursday, January 30 from 4-5pm PST. The second 6 paintings will be released at a second VAO on Friday, January 31 from 730-830am. Learn more about the VAOs, here. After the Virtual Art Openings, the available paintings will be in the Online Studio Shop.

Each Mama’s Milkies painting purchased comes with a free copy of the book (a $19.95 value)!

Prints Available: You can also choose prints from the illustrations in the book, in a variety of sizes and formats starting at $19, in Katie’s Online Studio Shop.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you so much for the flowing support that we have already received for this new project.

Love & Sincerely, Katie
