Brand new first-time mum, new to BF... Hi!!

Post by sorensmum » Mon Jan 28, 2013 5:18 pm

Hi everyone!

I'm a first timer to everything - parenthood and breastfeeding - and welcome all the advice and support I can get. I just had my beautiful little boy 3 weeks ago and was a bit wary about how breastfeeding would work for me (I've been told all the horror stories about how it didn't work for so many of my friends!)

Fortunately, breastfeeding worked for me at the hospital and have been demand-feeding my baby ever since. However, I'm really keen on expressing as well so that I can have a store of EBM for special occasions and ultimately, when I go back to work.

So great to have somewhere to turn to for support. Looking forward to posting and reading advice on here...

Hi, congratulations on your bub and glad breastfeeding is going well. Feeding on demand and not supplementing are great ways to ensure your baby stays fully breastfed :smt023
