Breastfeeding isn’t the be-all and end-all
While experts say that breastfeeding your baby is the ‘best’ way to do it, we like to think that ‘best’ means whatever keeps your baby nourished and mum and/or dad relaxed and happy.
Not everyone is able to, or wants to, breastfeed their child… so we thought we’d share some beautiful pictures celebrating the different ways parents feed their babies.
Feeding your baby with love and connection is the most important thing and we support whichever way works for you.
You’re all doing a great job. x
