Breastfeeding after maternity leave

The idea of continuing with breastfeeding when I returned to work was highlighted to me by a leaflet I stumbled upon at the maternity ward before I was discharged. I hadn’t thought that far yet and didn’t think about it again until when I had to write a letter to give notice of my return from maternity leave. Continue reading

Breastfeed in public?

I wish I could write that our first latch was an indicator of how our breastfeeding journey would proceed. I wish I could say that the breastfeeding honeymoon that it was, lasted. Fancy being in this wonderful place with the first fruit of your womb … the nurse helping you when needed … your husband and a few other professionals in the background … enraptured in your first breastfeed … without a care in the world.
