The trap that catches most new parents

How many times have you seen the ‘just in case’ lists for parents to be, that are a mile long and include a bunch of ‘feeding aids’ to ‘increase your chance of breastfeeding’?

Did you know that the first solution to most breastfeeding issues, is NOT giving a bottle?


A skilled breastfeeding supporter will offer you a myriad of breastfeeding solutions before offering a top up, and even then, extra milk/formula when indicated can be given without a bottle. The simplest, to the most complex, a spoon, cup, syringe, finger feeding, SNS.

What if all new parents knew, that finding free skilled support, or investing in paid support, before their baby arrives, is MORE likely to have them meeting their goals, than many of those expensive items on the ‘just in case’ list.


Some health care professionals aren’t allowed to tell you about the support outside of the NHS, you might have to do your own research. It’ll be worth it. I promise!


If you are #pregant and want to set yourself up to save money & maxise your chances at meeting your feeding goals, find your support now.


If you have a loved one who’s pregnant, why not link them up now? Give them a gift voucher for xmas?
