World Breastfeeding Week Learning to Feed

Did you know…

  • 9 in 10 mothers find some aspects of breastfeeding difficult..
  • 90% cited issues with milk and sore nipples as the most common problems.
  • The most popular point of call for mums looking for pregnancy, newborn and baby advice is the maternal health nurse, midwife or doctor.

We hear about breastfeeding a lot in the news. There often seems to be some kind of ‘scandal’ where a woman DARES to feed in PUBLIC (gasp!). We hear about the pressure women often feel to feed ‘perfectly’ despite opposition from partners, family or the general public. We hear so much about the debate between breast and bottle advocates.

You know what we don’t hear enough? Support for women and families, however they want to feed their babies, and passionate advocacy of their right to education and information.
