Why using a breastfeeding cover is a good idea

There seem to be some women out there who oppose the idea of a breastfeeding mother using a nursing cover.  They argue that you should not use a cover up when breastfeeding in public because ‘breastfeeding should be normalised’. The premise of this argument is that women cover up because of what others think or may say to them. In reality, I think very few people would actually express a negative sentiment towards a breastfeeding woman.   In many cases it is the mother who prefers to use a cover up when breastfeeding while she’s in the company of other people.  The argument that ‘breastfeeding should be normalised’…

Wondering about low milk supply?

If you’re like me, you may have wondered about how much milk your breasts produce and if it is sufficient for your baby. In the first few months of my baby’s life, I remember discussing this over coffee with one of my NCT friends just to gauge if what I was producing was ‘normal’.  My life revolved around breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months after becoming a mum and I had so many questions. After feeding my baby in the morning, I would express.  I wanted to make sure that I was building up my supply by removing…
