It’s not always straightforward…
I believe that breastfeeding is within the grasp of the majority of mums and babies…. but I also know that it’s not always straightforward…
Breastfeeding is the normal, natural way to feed and nurture a baby. When breastfeeding is going well, there is an easy, symbiotic flow between mum and baby. However, there are a number of things that can impact on that flow and some new mums and babies find that the early days of breastfeeding are confusing or a struggle – perhaps painful too. How could something so ‘natural’ prove to be so demanding and difficult?
Breastfeeding is like a dance that both mother and baby learn together. It doesn’t always ‘just happen’.
