Breastfeeding

I would like to tell you that Breastfeeding is the most trouble free time but often it is not!  
It gets better with positive help, the right support and time. If you are struggling then keep asking until you get the right advice. Sore nipples are not acceptable, they should improve over time with the correct latch. Go to a lactation consultant or if you have but no improvement then try another lactation consultant, ask a friend what they did, go to a La Leche group near you for breastfeeding advice by breastfeeding mothers, or try Plunket family centre. Or ask on my HolisticBaby Face book page. 

After 20 years as a Midwife while watching and supporting Mothers, I have found that many Mothers and Babies have a few bumps and hurdles along they way as they get to know each other. Breastfeeding your baby is a time of bonding, discovering a new relationship forming between yourself and your baby and if you can get through some hurdles then it will be an enjoyable experience with your baby. The products I have chosen will support and hopefully encourage you to breastfeed your baby for as long as you are able. I believe giving your baby your milk provides your baby with the best start in life and gives your baby the opportunity to reach its full potential of a healthy long life. Breast milk encourages healthy formation of gut flora that other food supplements cannot recreate. Breast milk is something that you know exactly what is in it as it is made by you.
