If you’re having a few difficulties, there are lots of options for support…
- local breastfeeding support groups including Whatsapp Groups
- useful websites including Kellymom along with Jack Newman videos / articles.
If you’re having more major breastfeeding issues…
- you might want to consider a lactation consultant, either privately or ask to be referred – I’ve seen several and they were truly amazing
- Shiku Mueke is based locally in Nairobi
Breastfeeding certainly didn’t come easy to me but I wanted to give it my best shot. And with a bit (well, a lot) of help I managed to breastfeed / combi feed for several months… which is several months longer than I thought I’d manage.
Wishing you well in your breastfeeding journey.
