Supporting Breastfeeding Mums

Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world, and it may not seem necessary to learn about. However, the ability to breastfeed successfully may not come naturally.

We understand how stressful it can be, along with the demands of a new mother as you embark on your breastfeeding journey. We hope these tips help build a successful breastfeeding journey for you and your family.

 

3 Tips for Breastfeeding Mums
  • Breastfeeding Intention A mother’s stated intention to breastfeed, is one of the strongest predictors of breastfeeding initiation and duration. Breastfeeding intention is affected by both a woman’s breastfeeding attitude and by the influence of people in her social network. Breastfeeding attitude can be influenced through early exposure during pregnancy.
  • Inspire and Empower Yourself Through Prenatal Education It is important that new mums acquire in-depth breastfeeding knowledge and skills prior to the birth of a baby. Low maternal breastfeeding confidence is associated with early cessation of breastfeeding. After all, you don’t know what you don’t know.
  • Social Network A women’s breastfeeding attitude and practice are unquestionably influenced by specific persons in her social networks, including the baby’s father, the extended family, and health care professionals. A mother with higher maternal breastfeeding confidence or has strong self-efficacy can influence others, goals, emotional reaction, coping and persistency. Being in a social network of breastfeeding mothers and health care professionals makes this challenging journey less tedious too.

 

Daddies, that hospital staycation makes a difference! Here’s why:
  • Giving birth was the most painful thing ever. It is scary to be alone during birthing process. Being there for mummy provides strong support and love to celebrate the birth of a little miracle. 
  • Early bonding with baby. New fathers often feel less confident than new mothers around a baby, and may feel excluded in the close relationship that develops between the mother and baby. 
  • Provide a helping hand for mummy during her stay in the hospital. Many mothers can be overwhelmed with emotions due to raging hormones or feel unattractive. Let her know you appreciate and love her.
