Early Days

Whether you are pregnant or you have just had a baby, getting off to the best possible start is so important.

This section includes getting started with positioning and attachment, signs that things are going well and information which may be useful if feeding is not going as you expected.

If you want to talk about any of the topics covered here in more detail, you could phone the National Breastfeeding Helpline to speak to a registered Breastfeeding Supporter. The National Breastfeeding Helpline is available from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm, 365 days a year, on 0300 100 0212.
