    I've been told by my midwife about our local hospitals breast feeding classes, has anyone been to one of these and what is it like?

    yes i went. it was quite useful, we watched videos and learned about expressing equipment and how to latch baby on, and how the breast works etc. it was a bit long (about 4 hours!) but its worth going if u wanna BF. x

    i went to a breastfeeding "workshop" for a couple of hours, and there was also a bit about it in the baby basics workshop i went to. was quite useful, good to be able to ask questions too.

    I should imagine it's quite nice to be able to interact with other new Mums too :)

    At our antenatal classes the MW spoke about breastfeeding and how to do it, showed us a video etc. but now that the baby has been born I've been invited to a breastfeeding group which I might pop along to, really to meet new mums. This is organised by the HV / Surestart so have a chat with them perhaps.

    Thanks,

    might just go and check it out, the mw said it's about 3 hours.

    i'll probably need all the help i can get..
