We sit down with Bridget, founder of the online support group for women, Midnight Mums, as she shares the most important advice she has received about breastfeeding and motherhood.
We just passed six solid months of breastfeeding, with the addition of solids in the past three weeks to help Bobby gain weight.

Breastfeeding as a busy mum can be challenging! So, to get some advice, we sat down with Karisha, who has 6 children. We hope that you find this interview helpful!
A phone call from Lisa came through and I could tell all was not well. Lisa explained that Sophie had not been feeding at the breast very well for the last two days. In addition, she had started to refuse bottles of expressed breast milk too!
Even before giving birth, I knew that the health benefits of breastfeeding were going to make me determined to give it my best shot. However, I quickly learned that breastfeeding, so often described as natural, can seem so unnatural.
Sophie is about 10 weeks old, so, Lisa and I sat down for a quick Skype chat. This is part 2 of our conversation. We hope that you find it useful as you continue on your own breastfeeding journey.
