  1. Give it a go and if it is not for you then don’t feel guilty! A least you tried and deserve merit for that 🙂 I only breast fed and expressed for the first few weeks and the mid wife told me I gave my babies the best start!

  2. I can only share tips that have been shared with me! But a friend used to have a little “station” in the living room where she’d feed, with the TV remote, drink, snack, notebook and pen (to remember feeding times etc.) and magazines 🙂

  3. Don’t let it consume you. I think there’s to much pressure for mothers to breast feed. I really struggled and found it wasn’t for me the first time round but I will try again next time and hopefully feel under less pressure in the hospital.

  4. I took it one day at a time with my first child, I was on the verge of giving up so many times, but I really wanted to do it. Every day I said one more day, then next thing I know I managed to get through the really difficult first 2-3 weeks and then it became the norm. I then began expressing a bit and feeding direct and using a bottle when I went back to work. In the end I expressed so much I donated loads to another mum who couldn’t produce enough. I managed 14 mths, got pregnant again so had to stop due to reduced production. This time around I found it so much easier and now at 8 mths I’m still feeding my second, so my advice take one day at a time and plenty of cookies!! 😉

  5. Relax, and take care of yourself. Sufficient nutrition and hydration etc. Get comfortable, and have everything you need nearby before settling down to breastfeed.

  6. Try to be as relaxed as possible. Put on some soothing music and get as comfortable as you can. I wasn’t able to breastfeed for long which was a real shame.

  7. If you can’t do it don’t feel like a failure! Relax when trying and best thing I did was get Netflix and watched box sets!

  8. Be comfortable – whether that is the way you are sitting, the heat – make sure you are settled and comfortable for stress free feeding

  9. Before expressing get yourself comfortable and maybe listen to some music.Don’t try and force the milk out as this will only stress you out and you won’t produce anything.Also whilst breastfeeding try to accept it as soon as possible if it’s not working out.you are by no means a failure but it’s less stressful for you and baby if you simply move on to bottle feeding.Sometimes I think there is too much unnecessary pressure on new mums to breast feed.It is your baby and your choice how to feed it.Other peoples opinions don’t matter.

  10. I only breastfed for 9 weeks and only expressed a handful of times so I have no tips 🙁 But I would always say you gotta look after your nips! xx

  11. Make sure to keep snacks and drinks nearby, it can take a while to get into a good rythym, and also have a picture of your baby to hand if they are asleep when you are expressing 🙂 x

  12. My breastfeeding tip is to always wear comfortable and easy access able clothes if you don’t have any clothes especially made for breastfeeding your baby. Things that can unbutton or zip. x

  13. to not panic if it doesn’t work straight away for you, with my first I couldn’t breastfeed in hospital and was in for six days, but once we were home, with less pressure, it happened and i happily combi-fed for 6 months

  14. don’t get stressed about it and take your time, sometimes other people’s advice is more of a hindrance than a help

  15. i didnt master breast feeding with my 3 kids,but i plan to try again for the one i am expecting now and have taken note of these tips.thanks everyone x

  16. The first few days and weeks are the hardest but stick with it and try and relax. Join a peer support group so you can talk to other mums going through the same thing.
