We know that public breastfeeding has been a hot topic over the last few years. Individual choice is what matters to us and we seek to inform rather than push any side of the debate. 

Breastfeeding Health

There are so many unknowns in your breastfeeding journey. There are likely to be a few surprises and sometimes you just don't know if something is wrong. 

Here we try to answer all those lingering questions around common complications, and also provide some clarity on any changes your body may experience that could lead you to questioning your health. 

Breast Milk Supply and weaning

Supply issues can be one of the most stressful problems when breastfeeding. It is easy to feel that you are letting your child down, which can lead to guilt setting in.

Everyone's body will respond differently to the demands of breastfeeding. Some may produce too much, or too little milk. Training your body towards whatever your goal is can be done in most cases. 

If not, you can supplement with formula. When it is time to wean then off then this can be an important part of the process too. 

The below posts will help answer your questions, and more. 

Breastfeeding accessories & Equipment

Breastfeeding is a continual process that you will need to manage whether your baby is with you or not.

Here we seek to equip you with what you need to be able to feed comfortably no matter where you are. 

Pumping breast milk is most often the task of the working Mom. It takes discipline and persistence that pays off in the form of a happy and healthy baby. 

The pumping in itself is on the beginning. You need to be able to store and move that breast milk so that it remains fresh, and safe for your baby to drink. then you have to organize your stock so that expiration dates are recorded, and a first in first out system is followed so that your hard work does not go to waste. 

We will guide you through what you need, and how to make a system that works for you in the posts below.
