Breastfeeding your baby is one of the best things you can do to support your baby’s health. Not only is breast milk packed with powerful antibodies which boost your baby’s immune system, it’s also a great way to bond with your baby – and offers plenty of benefits for you too.


From first feeds to overcoming common breastfeeding problems we’ve got a wealth of information to help you get breastfeeding off to the best possible start.

It’s important to look after yourself as well as your baby. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself – perhaps try expressing and storing milk when you have the energy so you can continue breastfeeding as soon as you can. 

Getting Started

Here we have put together some advice to help you when you start breastfeeding, so you and your baby can enjoy the many benefits it brings.

In the video below Dr Sarah Jarvis talks through the best way to get breastfeeding off to a successful start, step-by-step. From the extra hygiene measures you’ll want to take during the pandemic, the different breastfeeding positions you can try, to advice about getting your baby latched on

If you’d like more information about any of the topics Dr Sarah Jarvis covers, we’re here to help or if you’ve already started breastfeeding, you could also watch Dr Sarah share her top tips for keeping going.
