Breastfeeding lying down

Although breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby, you both still need to learn how to do it and you may both need some practice to get it right. If you have good information and support, and are confident about feeding, you should be able to overcome any problems that arise.

This section deals with some of the problems you might encounter. Don’t be put off by these. You’re not likely to get them all, and with the right support, there’s no reason to expect you’ll get any of them. But with most of these problems, the sooner you take action, the easier it is to resolve them, so it’s better to be forewarned.
