Breastfeeding


I breastfed Alicia and now breastfeed Eloise - it's easy - no sterilising, no getting in the middle of the night to warm bottles - when you go out you don't have to think about anything... other than a spare nappy.

I'm not saying the first few days or weeks might be a bit uncomfortable - both you and your baby need to learn what to do here... but it's really worth it - Alicia has never had antibiotics and is quite a healthy kid.

This Tuesday we went along to the La Leche League meeting in nearby Gallargues-le-Montueux: it's monthly, starting at 0930hrs (dates of meetings are on their site above.) and it's a good chance to exchange tips on feeding and babies... you also get to make some friends. Juanita who helps runs the group is Canadian and speaks English. They also offer a SOS telephone service and you can also pick up tips and help in English on their site too.
