…after 6 weeks but then it turns out that the NHS support ends there!!!
Yesterday I again went on a hunt To find support and answers and tips on how to stop moo just taking the nipple. I then discovered that both the NHS breastfeeding clinics in the area stop offering assistance when your baby is 6 weeks old. Surely if they want mums to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months they should be offering assistance for at least that length of time! Personally I’d rather see it not have a limit!
It just seems crazy to me that the NHS preach Breast is best, feed exclusively for 6 months etc yet at 6 weeks they cut the support! Maybe it’s just my area I don’t know but it’s flaming frustrated me!
If I had the money I’d be paying a private lactation consultant. Sadly I don’t. So in the mean time until pickle starts school all day I’m going to carry on grinning N bearing it until I can get to the bf cafe!
P.s. Thanks again to all the twitter mummies that have given me breastfeeding advice! It’s been invaluable!
