topic3 Breatfeeding Support In My Local Area

Post by ♥poppysmummy♥ on Fri Dec 11, 2009 4:39 pm

Hi everyone, my name is Chloe I had a beautiful baby girl 8weeks ago and really enjoying breastfeeding (apart from the inital pains) I was wondering if there was anyone else from the Birmingham area who could guide me on the best places for support and if anyone knows of any handy places for breastfeeding, a few times now I have been caught out with people being a bit funny and would be most grateful if there are any local ladies xx

Welcome!

I found initially when BF in public that because my LO was so tiny, people were staring at him!! People don't often see very young babies out and about so well done.

In what sense have people been 'funny' about it?

Might be a bit late to respond, but I tend to like feeding either coffee shops mostly, but John Lewis and Mothercare are normally very good for feeding rooms which means you can go and sit comfortably without buying a coffee if you aren't ready to stop for one.

Good luck, I hope things are going well. My hubby comes from that area (Halesowen) and his parents, grandparents and sister still live there.

Hi, congratulations on your bundle of love! Have you asked your HV if there's a breastfeeding cafe anywhere near you? I found that a great help when Rhi was tiny. A great suggestion someone gave me was to try breast feeding at home in front of a mirror, you'll be surprised how little can be seen, actualy it often just looks like your giving her a cuddle, so it can be more in your mind, or it was in mine anyway.
Hope you find some like minded mums soon
