Breastfeeding can be challenging, especially in the early days. Remember you are not alone. The Norfolk Healthy Child Programme have a team of specialist infant feeding champions you can talk to.
Some people find breastfeeding challenging, no matter if it is their first, second or third baby. Even if they have found it easy to breastfeed one baby, remember every breastfeeding experience is different.
Here are links to information on some common challenges you may experience and how to overcome them.
If your baby is less than 28 days old you can contact your local midwifery team or you can contact the Healthy Child Programme at any time following your baby's birth by calling Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 or texting Parentline on 07520 631590.
