“Before I had my daughter I thought it would be easy to breastfeed, it took a while for my milk to come in and needed help from my midwife to position my daughter properly on my breast. I had problems feeding her on one breast so it and got an infection and had to feed from just the one side for a while.  I was lucky I had a great support system from the midwife and my health visitor to help me with mine and my daughters breastfeeding journey. 

I aimed to breastfeed for 6 months or when she got teeth, I was frightened it would hurt with her teeth. I never imagined I would breastfeed for this long and have no plans to stop anytime soon. “
