Milky Starts offers practical and compassionate breastfeeding support, whatever the challenges you are facing. I would love to help you reach your feeding goals.
I have been helping breastfeeding families for over seven years. My interest in infant feeding began during my midwifery career which led me to train as a lactation consultant. I am passionate about supporting new families with breastfeeding and lactation.
Whilst breastfeeding is a natural process it can time and practise to get the hang of it. Make sure you are sitting comfortably and that you are holding your baby close to you; their body should be facing your chest. Position your baby so that their nose is in line with your nipple. Wait for them to open their mouth wide and guide them to your breast with their chin leading. They should have a large chunk of your breast tissue in their mouth. If you are unsure about your technique, please reach out to me and I can help.
