Breastfeeding Support

by - 07:30:00

Having support in breastfeeding is very important, whether it be from family, friends, co-workers, groups or medical staff, I feel everyone should have someone to turn to when they need help or advice.

In our first week, me and Kairi just couldn't work out how to latch on properly. Lucky for us though, we had loads of help and support around. First I spoke to my mum and sister, I researched on the internet and then I attended both the breastfeeding cafés. They were fantastic and we realized the problem was because my breasts had grown during pregnancy and my milk had came in, I could no longer see my nipples, which meant I had no idea where to out Kairi to help her latch. They showed me a trick where I rolled up a muslin and placed it under my breast, it worked fantastically and we have had an amazing time feeding from then on!
On our midwife check, the midwife who came to see us, showed us how to feed comfortably laying down (this is a fantastic position which I recommend everyone to try, its a life saver at nights!), while showing us she taught me all about the signs to see who Kairi was enjoying her feed (like curling her toes). It was so sweet to watch then and still makes me smile every time I look now!

Something I would like to do in the future is become a breastfeeding support worker. I would love to help others like they have helped me :)
