This year National Breastfeeding Week will be taking place from 18th – 24th September. Continuing and building on last year’s theme, ‘Everyone has a part to play in helping mums to breastfeed’. This will include daily themes and activities showing how families, community and health and education services all have a part to play in supporting mothers to have the feeding experience they hoped for.
Breastfeeding is a skill that takes time to get the hang of. Lots of mums wonder if their baby’s feeding well and getting enough – especially in the first few days.
But once you’ve mastered it, you’ll probably find it’s the easiest and most satisfying way to feed your baby.
