Breastfeeding your child

Our guests share their breastfeeding stories and experiences – mastitis, cracked nipples, getting the attachment right, positioning your baby – they candidly discuss them all.

Discover why some babies have trouble sleeping and how developing a routine can help. Babies respond well to a familiar pattern of events, and sleeping in the same environment each night offers them a sense of security and comfort. The pattern of napping usually includes a morning, afternoon and early evening nap. All babies are different and as such there is quite a variation in the napping patterns of babies. See our guide to how much sleep your baby should be having as a reference.
