What to expect with the first ever feed and during the first week
How often and how much to feed (and what about routines?)
What partners can do to support breastfeeding women and bond with their babies
What to do if you encounter common challenges (including sore nipples, mastitis, thrush, tongue tie and milk supply issues)
When you may need to express and how to supplement if necessary
How to bottle feed responsively as a transition to (or a break from) breastfeeding
There will also be plenty of time to discuss your questions around:
Mum’s diet while feeding (and what about medications or alcohol?)
