Video: Breastfeeding problems: getting support

0-18 months

In this video we hear from a counsellor and lactation consultant who says that if you’re having breastfeeding problems, get support early. Mums talk about having mastitis, nipple pain and attachment issues – and about getting help. One mum says she was about to give up on breastfeeding but got help from a lactation consultant. This meant she could look at her baby breastfeeding and smile for the first time.
