Congratulations on the arrival of your little one! As you dive into the wonderful world of motherhood, breastfeeding emerges as a cornerstone of bonding and nourishment between you and your bub.

But hey, we know it's not always smooth sailing, especially when worries about milk supply start creeping in. But fear not! Let's chat about how you can sail through this journey with confidence and positivity, backed by some expert advice.


Got milk?

First things first, let's squash that myth about not producing enough milk!
Trust us, mama, your body is incredible, and it knows just what your baby needs. So take a deep breath and know that you've got this!

The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) emphasizes that most mums can produce enough milk to meet their baby's needs. Your body knows just what your bub needs, so take a deep breath, trust yourself, and let nature do its thing.


Embrace the emotion

Now, let's talk about those emotional rollercoasters. Research from the Australian Institute of Family Studies highlights the ups and downs experienced by new mums, from the overwhelming love for your little one to moments of doubt and worry.

Remember, it's completely normal to have these feelings – you're human! But don't let them hold you back. Surround yourself with positivity, whether it's uplifting affirmations, cozy cuddle sessions with your little one, or a good ol' laugh with a fellow mama.


Get support

Speaking of support, please don’t be afraid to reach out for whatever support works best for you.

From breastfeeding classes to online support groups to lactation consultants, there's a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. Soak it all in, mama, and don't be afraid to ask questions. You're not alone on this journey, and there's no such thing as a silly question when it comes to taking care of your precious babe.

A great option when you don’t know where to start is to call the ABA’s 24/7 Breastfeeding Helpline on 1800 mum 2 mum (1800 686 268). Whether you’re looking for specific support or just need to chat with someone that understands what you’re going through, you can call anytime to speak with a qualified breastfeeding counsellor.



Now, let's not forget about the importance of self-care. Studies from the Australian College of Midwives highlight the significance of self-care practices for mums during the postpartum period.

We know, we know – it's easier said than done when you're knee-deep in nappies and baby snuggles. But carving out a little me-time is essential, whether it's enjoying a cuppa in the sunshine, taking a stroll along the beach with your bub, or indulging in some Tim Tams. Prioritising self-care is key to looking after yourself while caring for your little one.


You’ve got this!

So, to all you incredible new mamas out there, remember that you're not alone on this journey. With the right support, information, and a sprinkle of self-care, you can navigate breastfeeding with confidence and joy.

Embrace the beautiful bond you share with your bub, trust in your body's capabilities, and celebrate each milestone along the way. Here's to the incredible adventure of motherhood – one breastfeeding session at a time! 💖
