This course will cover personal and professional experiences of breastfeeding and move on to discuss the practicalities of breastfeeding for mothers of first babies and of subsequent babies. It covers all forms of feeding including use of supplemental nursing systems and dealing with common issues (mastitis, blocked ducts, tongue tie, etc). We will cover supporting a bottle-feeding mother and the problems she might encounter as well as managing expectations, the psychology and physiology of both breastfeeding and bottle-feeding mothers. We also discuss onward signposting for mothers needing additional support and further opportunities for you to develop your breastfeeding career.
