We start the class with a question and answer session. I want ensure that we cover all your concerns and issues. We then move on to the following topics:

  • Feeding patterns/ routines
  • Night time feeding/sleeping patterns/getting your baby to sleep
  • Understanding your baby’s behaviour
  • Adapting to motherhood
  • Breastfeeding problems; blocked ducts, mastitis, thrush
  • Colic
  • Expressing/pumping
  • Teething
  • Introducing solids
  • Breastfeeding out & about
 

When should I take the Mum & Baby Breastfeeding Class?

Anytime after four weeks. During the first four weeks it is best to take the time to recuperate from the labour and birth and get  breastfeeding established. 

If you are experiencing any problems during the first month please contact me and we can discuss your options as you may need to have a one to one consultation with me in the clinic. You can take the Baby & Me postnatal breastfeeding class at a later date.
