Video: When breastfeeding doesn’t work out

0-6 months

This video is about when breastfeeding doesn’t work out. Deciding to stop breastfeeding and start bottle-feeding can be difficult, and it’s important for you to feel supported. We hear from mums who got support from mothers groups and counsellors as well as from friends and family. A child and family health nurse and counsellor talks about getting support and gives tips for bonding with baby while bottle-feeding.
