Breastfeeding when your baby is unwell

Fortunately, due to the immunity boosting factors in your breast-milk, your breastfed baby will usually be healthy and well.

I never considered not breastfeeding her but some minor complications during the delivery meant she spent 3 days in special care and was nil by mouth during that time so I learnt to hand express colostrum.

Breastfeeding in public was a no-brainer to me. My whole life I had lived and breathed women’s rights.

How Alison increased her milk supply

Our Beautiful Daughter Stella was born on 26th January, 2012.  She is our gorgeous Australia Day baby.  I never expected I would like or enjoy breastfeeding, it felt as if it would be a strange thing to do.  I didn’t know a lot of people who had breastfed for very long or at all for that matter.  Looking back I am glad that my perception of…
