The first few weeks of breastfeeding are always the hardest. It is common for your baby to be the first you have ever held, let alone totally cared for. The whole idea can be quite daunting and scary and breastfeeding can seem so hard. We want to support you. If you are having trouble, please don’t wait – seeking help early is key.
The breastfeeding clinic is targeted towards mothers whose babies are only a few weeks old. However, if your baby is older and you are still having problems, please come in. This is often the time when we find a permanent solution to the problem.
Ideally, your baby will be ready for a feed shortly after arriving. It would be helpful if you email Angela prior with approximate arrival time, however, it is not necessary if you cannot.
