Breastfeeding isn’t always easy and there will be times you face challenges. If you’re experiencing difficulties, it can feel very lonely.

Never ignore any issues you may have – talk to your health visitor, midwife, GP or breastfeeding specialist as soon as possible. It may well be a very simple fix or a quick bit of reassurance that everything is ok.

“Breastfeeding has been so important to me to try and give the best start to my son, although it has not been an easy ride due to his tongue tie. There have been days where I’ve sat and cried and struggled through the feeds, the demand of his feeding and the overwhelming sense of responsibility. The breastfeeding drop in’s have really helped to keep me going & to give me support and guidance to allow me to continue through our journey and learn together.”
