  1. We really struggled with breastfeeding at first and wish I had seen this then, I drank so much when I was feeding Henry and didn’t realise at the time the two things were related until quite a few weeks in. Lactation cookies helped us too, so many tasty recipes online and they boosted our supply a little bit which was so handy when Henry has a growth spurt. #stayclassymama

  2. These are brill tips… I didn’t breastfeed either of mine, and I gave it the whole “I’m a feminist and this is the choice that’s right for me and mine” but if I’m honest there was a little part of me that just was a little bit confused and worried about getting it right/being able to etc… This is such a useful video for new and expectant mums! x

  3. I found pumping nearly impossible! But I do understand the principle behind supply and demand. My first baby struggled a bit in the early days, but breastfeeding my second was much easier. Maybe because I was more relaxed?
    Great tips!

  4. I think that tip 3 is key! You are so intent on trying to get breastmilk that you can become really tense. Relaxing makes it all so much easier. Also what you said about eating healthy and drinking lots of water. I forgot to do this for ages and I was even eating loads of chocolate eclairs because someone had told me it would help with milk production!! Not my best move. You have shared some really brilliant tips! #StayClassyMama

  5. Yeah I agree relaxing and experimenting is key! Easy to say but not putting pressure on yourself and accepting that what ever the choice of feeding; it’s all doing the same job of feeding baby! #stayclassymama

  6. LOL, just reading the title of this post made me feel like my milk let down. My kid is ten so I’m pretty sure that’s impossible. 🙂 My favorite part of the experience aside from the bonding was that I was expected to eat more calories to keep my milk supply up. The flipside was even better because breastfeeding burned major calories for me. Win/win. Great nips…I mean tips. 😉 #stayclassymama

  7. Drinking water is so important. Can’t make a liquid without putting some liquid into your body. Eating oats is also very helpful. I also found that doing compression techniques while pumping drastically increased my supply. We’re at the end of our breastfeeding journey and down to just one feeding per day. It’s been over a year and it feels like the end of an era. #StayClassyMama

  8. I’m praying I can breast feed and so pleased to find such amazing advice around…14 weeks and waiting to find out for myself. Thank you #stayclassymama

  9. I’d love to have tried breast feeding but I had a double mastectomy (think Angelina Jolie dodgy genes and cancer prevention) so wasn’t able to. Well done on helping other mums with something that I know they often struggle with though! #StayClassyMama

  10. I found the medela pump to be the most amazing thing EVER!!!! Ben didnt really enjoy breastfeeding – he liked a shield but then at times he got super impatient for me to put it on and a bottle with tommee tippee prep machine was our saving grace. I think as he was a NICU baby that was tube fed he was used to getting it there and then.
    I managed 3 or 4 months before his demand got too much for my buzzoms! #stayclassymama
