Pinky McKay – The Liberator Our Liberator, Pinky McKay is a best-selling author, speaker and lactation consultant. Her books include Sleeping Like a Baby, 100 Ways to Calm the Crying, Toddler Tactics and Parenting By Heart. In a world where common sense isn’t so common, Pinky McKay provides real-world, no-nonsense, parenting support and approaches with a blend of humour, sharp wit and wisdom not found anywhere else. She specializes in gentle parenting styles that honour mothers’ natural instincts to respond to their babies and empower a positive response from infants and toddlers. She says, “Babies and toddlers are people too and they deserve empathy and respect, not ‘training’ through techniques such as rigid routines, controlled crying or spanking. This allows children to respond positively to their environment and to develop appropriate boundaries through mutual respect and strong family relationships.” Her real world experience stems from being the mother of five and ‘hands on’ grandmother of three littlies. Her Boobie Bikkies, specifically and lovingly created to increase lactation in breast feeding mums, are in hot demand!
