Breastfeeding…making milk

While breastfeeding is natural, it doesn’t always come naturally, which is why preparation can help, explains Lucia from BreastfeedingNZ. 

The more you prepare for breastfeeding during pregnancy, the smoother your journey may be. Keep in mind that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. We’re all different, as are our babies, and breastfeeding may not be a straightforward experience. Your journey may have ups and downs, trials and errors, but you and pēpi will grow and learn together.

Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby. It is all pēpi needs to eat and drink for about the first six months. It’s tailored to help protect your little one against colds, tummy bugs, infections, and allergies, and breastfeeding helps your baby to feel safe and secure.

Breastfeeding is natural, but it doesn’t come naturally! You will need to learn the techniques. And this is where the information here can really help, so that you know what to expect before pēpi arrives. . . SUBSCRIBE HERE AND READ THE FULL STORY
