My Breastfeeding Tips

Everyone has there own tips but this is what has worked for me:

In the early days stay at home do lots and lots of skin to skin contact it is very important to get your milk flow up and feed regularly, concentrate on the latch.

Go to a babycafe within 4-6 weeks after birth, they can watch you feed and give you help and advice on latching, also you will meet other breastfeeding mothers who will be able to share experiences.

If you want to express get a good pump, some women are lucky and can express 4oz from word go but i like most wasnt that lucky. Spend a good week expressing as often as you can i did 8 times a day to get your milk supply up. I have a lactaline personal pump and it is worth every penny, expressing both boobs at once you can control speed and suction aswell.

OATS! If you worry about your milk supply fenugreek didnt work for me, oats did i ate porrdige every morning and i could see a huge difference within 4 days.

I have had mastitis 3 times, and it is awful. During the early days make sure your feeding regularly and if your lucky enough to have a sleeping through baby express before you go to bed and as soon as you wake up to avoid any blocked milk ducts.

Dont feel embarrased to feed in public, Breastfeeding is beautiful the and  best thing you can do for your baby .
