Milk & Moon is the child of Australian charity Possums & Co.
Milk & Moon aims to empower you. You’ll notice that we flip a lot of the advice you receive upside down. We aim to help you trust both your baby and yourself.
Milk & Moon proudly takes an ethical stance against the many unhelpful diagnoses and treatments given to mothers and babies, which put you and your little one at risk of side-effects and unnecessary financial expense.
Possums & Co. are international leaders in evidence-based support of breastfeeding, baby sleep and cry-fuss problems and parent mood. Developed with various teams by Founder and Medical Director Dr Pamela Douglas, Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC or ‘the Possums programs’) offers a genuine paradigm shift. Our work has been developed and published over the past two decades in about 30 research publications, drawing on the latest research including lactation science, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, sleep science, attachment psychology and a new set of powerful psychological strategies known as ACT.
If you are a health professional or healthcare provider looking to expand your skills, you can learn how you can become part of the movement for change in early life care.
