Breastfeeding

Your baby's needs are simple and few: food, care and comfort. You have already grown your baby in your womb for 9 months. Your body is designed to continue doing this through breastfeeding. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of your baby’s life and for breastfeeding to continue, with the addition of other foods, until 2 years or older. You can keep on breastfeeding for as long as you and your child wish.
In the early weeks/months, you and your baby are getting to know each other. You work together to build your milk supply. Feeding your baby whenever he needs it will help him get all the milk he needs to grow and develop. However, nearly all nursing mothers worry at one time or another about whether their babies are getting enough milk. Since we can’t measure breast milk intake the way we can formula intake, it is easy to feel insecure about the adequacy of our milk supplies. The “perception” of insufficient breast milk production is the most common reason mothers give for weaning or early introduction of solids or supplements. Although there is a very small percentage of women who can’t produce enough milk no matter what they do, this is extremely rare. Mothers can almost always produce some milk to give their babies, even if they have to supplement with formula.
Should you feel you want a little help, we have a selection of products that contain herbs which have been used for centuries for maintaining and gently stimulating milk supply and flow, as well as an elixir which helps to strengthen and balance the body and give new vitality after the stresses and changes of becoming a new mum, which in turn helps ensure a healthy milk supply.
