Exclusive breastfeeding (breastmilk only) is recommended for around the first 6 months of your baby’s life. Breastfeeding alongside solid foods is best for babies from 6 months.

It’s normal to have lots of concerns, worries and uncertainty with a new baby and things always crop up along the way as they get older too. We’ve got support to get you through.

If you are worried or have any questions about breastfeeding please check out our support page for details of support in your area.

Believe in yourself, trust your instincts and know that there will be hard days and hard nights, and you will have to find strength in why you’re doing this… it's all for your baby!

And one day, whenever that is for you, it will end and you will have achieved the most amazing thing for you and your baby.

Get the support and know where to go to find it as we all need it, and it’s ok to ask for help.
