Hello all, If you have any breast feeding questions, please do ask. I breast fed one of my children for quite a few years.... longer in fact than anyone I know! I breast fed all my children but not for long. The last one I decided to stick at it and it was really great. The benefits are: 1. You don't have to carry tons of bottles 2. You don't have to warm up bottles 3. Baby doesn't scream for ages whilst you go get bottle and heat it up. 4. Baby is more settled 5. Baby does not get wind 6. Baby does not get colic 7. When baby wakes up in the night, you don't have to leave your bedroom! 8. It's always on tap 9. You don't need to substitute feeds with water 10. You don't need to start solids too early On the minus side 1. It is harder to leave your baby unless you express ( I didn't leave or feel I needed a break because baby was so calm). 2. Your boobs are huge (ok.. that can be a good thing too!) They will settle down. 3. You milk may leak 4. Baby's poo is more runny (but hey that;s natural). 5. Dad cannot feed baby, but he can sit behind you both and cradle you together. I cannot think of any more. Any questions, ask away. Kind REgards Kiki Sitech Creations Ltd.
