New to forums! Hello!

Post by MeggieLowe » Tue Aug 27, 2013 1:07 am

Hi, I'm new to forums in general so hope I'm posting in the right place etc! A friend recommended joining to get some support & advice with bf my baby (due in 4 weeks). I have a 2 year old girl but had problems bf her as she was born with a tongue tie. So I'm really a first time mum when it comes to bf and really hope I can get it to work this time :-)

Welcome! Sounds like you and I have similar due dates - there's a 'third trimester' thread in the pregnancy forum if you want to say hello there too!

Hi and welcome!!

Have you considered going to a breastfeeding Education class? they are a great way to see how breastfeeding works. They are really imformative and give mums and their partner/support person an oppotunity to speak to a counsellor and ask any questions. BECs also come with a years ABA membership :D

Ooo I second the BEC classes. If you can book into one before you pop, they're well worth it. Even if that won't work for you, if you're big on reading the little book you get with ABA membership is sooooo informative.

Welcome! :smt006

Yep, breastfeeding with a tongue-tie can definitely be challenging.

Wishing you a much smoother breastfeeding journey this time. :D
