'Keeping Abreast' is a Science Minded Fact Pack full of essential information you need to know about breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is a skill that must be learned, by both mother and baby. Whilst it is natural, it does not come naturally for many women - and that's ok!
We live in a culture where so much of breastfeeding is hidden (sometimes literally). It’s no surprise that many new mothers know so little about it. We rarely sit next to a feeding mother and keenly observe and ask questions about how it all works. Questions aren't asked around the dinner table.
This Fact Pack is an evidence-based, heavily-research but simply-worded guide that takes you through the basics of breastfeeding, including the anatomy of your breasts, how milk is made, magic of colostrum, the nutritional makeup of breastmilk, the types of feeding: cluster feeding, bottle feeding (including combinbation formula feeding!). It tackles common issues such as mastitis, reflux and colic and has a list of resources at the ready for when you feel like you might need support and advice from a professional.
