Feeling good about feeding babies

Fiona Woollard, Heather Trickey


Feeding babies can often be a joyful and satisfying experience. However things don’t always feel so good. Many women suffer from shame, guilt and embarrassment, whether they are breastfeeding directly or feeding expressed breast milk or infant formula in a bottle or tube. Many feel unsupported. Sometimes women feel like they must justify their decisions to others. Earlier this year the Feeling Good About Feeding Babies website (https://feelingsaboutfeedingbabies.co.uk) was launched. It sets out to help parents and family members, friends, health professionals and others who provide support with feeding to have better conversations about how parents feed their babies. It is intended to help parents and those supporting them to think about their feelings, bust some unhelpful ideas and start supportive conversations.
