Breastfeeding Confidently and Comfortably with Smylyn Bubby Covers : Review by Fi Morrison

Smylyn Bubby Cover Review

Fi Morrison, Nursery Collective Mama Blogger Expert, reviews the Smylyn Bubby Cover.

I recently welcomed my second son to the world, embarking on my second breastfeeding journey with a (slightly) clearer idea of what I was doing. After breastfeeding my firstborn for 14 months, I was aware of the different types of holds, the mechanics of getting a baby to latch, and how to express for bottle feeds. I thought I would feel confident and comfortable breastfeeding the second time round.

The Things I didn’t know about Breastfeeding

The Things I didn't Know about Breastfeeding

Lisa Collis, Owner and Creator of Smylyn Bubby Covers shares her story about all the things she didn’t know about breastfeeding when she had her first baby.

Today marks the beginning of World Breastfeeding Week (Aug 1-7, 2017) which is aimed at encouraging Mums to breastfeed their children for at least the first six months of their baby’s life. Breastfeeding my babies was one of the most difficult challenges for me as a new Mum, and I was fortunate enough to be able to breastfeed both of them with a lot of help and support! I barely made it to 6 months with my son, but made it to almost a year with my daughter and probably would have fed her for longer if she wasn’t so adamant that she was done (headstrong from the very beginning!).

It’s so important to talk about the fact that breastfeeding doesn’t come naturally to every Mum and that it can be incredibly hard in the early days – but, with the right information and support systems in place, most mums can successfully breastfeed. Read about my breastfeeding journey here plus some fabulous Breastfeeding tips from Jessica McCarroll at First in Breast Dressed. If you’re struggling in your feeding journey, please reach out to a Lactation consultant, or pop over to our Facebook support Group FIND YOUR VILLAGE – our lovely group of Mums would love to support you!
