Feeling good about how we feed our babies

This website sets out to help parents and family members, friends, health professionals and others who provide support with feeding to have better conversations about how we feed our babies. We’ll look at:

  • Stories from parents about their feelings about how they fed their babies
  • Two common unhelpful ways of thinking about feeding babies – and how these unhelpful ways of thinking can leave parents feeling bad
  • How we feel when things don’t work out the way we wanted

This website gives ideas to help us think about our feelings about feeding babies and tries to start supportive conversations about why different parents make different decisions.
