Top Tips Breast-feeding
Learn about breast-feeding while you are pregnant.
If possible, get advice and tips from recent mothers and if you go to an antenatal group,
ask questions so as to prepare yourself to give breast-feeding your best shot.
Don’t be put off breast-feeding by well-meaning people who tell you that you will drained of energy,
have no time to yourself and have your freedom severely limited. Although there is a grain of truth in these arguments, the bottom line is that breast ilk is the ideal foodstuff for your baby, it helps get your body back to it’s pre-pregnant state and it is free, portable and always available.
Unless there is a good reason to use formula, stick with breast milk. Even a month of exclusive breast-feeding will benefit your child’s immune system, brain development and long-term health.
Mixed feeding, where breast milk is supplemented by formula, should be delayed for as long as possible, particularly when babies are born into a family with a history of eczema, asthma or hay fever.
If you feel that breast-feeding isn’t working for you, consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor before you stop: they may be able to offer you the support and backup you need.
