Everyone talks about preparing for the baby, preparing the house and preparing the family for the baby. A mother is told how to prepare her body for labour but no one plans and prepares the body for breastfeeding.
One week moved onto 4 weeks and we had learnt new things. reading a book about it is not the same as the reality it’s so different.
The first week well where do I start. We had a very tiring week, had to take day by day hour by hour. the perseverance of breastfeeding was taking its toll and she wasn’t losing weight but we were not seeing a significant gain either.
I was given complementary tickets to visit the ‘Baby to Toddler event’, which was set up by the same people behind the well known ‘Baby Show’ which is held every year in and around the major cities like London, Manchester and Birmingham.
