My passion for supporting mothers and babies who are breastfeeding initially came from my own personal struggles and eventual success with breastfeeding.I was a midwife and Lactation Consultant when I had my only child (who is now 12!), yet still with all that knowledge, skill and experience breastfeeding did not go to plan for me. Pregnancy and the early [...]
My breastfeeding experiences were not without challenges however both were overwhelmingly positive and I worked Aromababy around my babies’ needs. My first-born took almost three months to attach well and because I simply didn’t know any better, I persevered. He was not a very settled baby so breastfeeds during the night were common (and exhausting) nonetheless I breastfed Beau [...]
I always wanted to breastfeed my babies and I wanted to do it for as long as I could or as close to 12 months as I could get, but I didn’t get that far and that is ok.I wouldn’t say my journey was a tough one, it was tough at the time but I have heard stories [...]

It was around the whole ‘breast is best’ versus ‘fed is best’ mantras that are rampant around social media and parenting groups in particular, however this one talked about a different sort of ‘best’ that said it was…This really struck a chord within me [...]
When I had my son, breastfeeding initially came quite naturally to us. He latched well for his first feed and since I had such a large supply, the milk flowed and he was able to gain good amounts of milk at each feed. This was all great at first, but as my milk settled in and started to regulate, [...]
I have two children and two completely different experiences. My first couldn’t feed from the breast at all. I tried for three days, but it was so painful, like feeding a shark, and he was not transferring milk. I sadly started formula feeding him when he was 4 days old, and he couldn’t really feed from a bottle properly either. [...]
