Feeding your baby

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a skill to learn together with your baby. These videos can support you while you learn.

They include how to:

  • hold your baby to help them latch
  • know when to breastfeed for both you and baby
  • hand express your milk

The ‘what to expect’ video shows mums sharing their experiences and tips.
