The former Daily Show With Jon Stewart correspondent gave birth to her and John Mulaney’s son, Malcolm, in November 2021 and told her Instagram followers about her nursing struggles two months later.

“Breast-feeding is soooo hard, especially if you have low supply,” the Newsroom alum wrote on her Story on Wednesday, January 19. “Eight weeks in and I’ve taken a million vitamins, countless teas, lozenges, tinctures and worked with two lactation consultants. Breast-feeding. Is. Hard.”

The Office Christmas Party star went on to post a photo of her dog, joking that “at least someone was making good use of [her] breast-feeding pillow.”
