Practical Advice and Information

You know as well as we do..once you have a baby advice comes thick and fast from all directions! Often all you need is some common sense, practical tips to help you deal with day-to-day life, especially if you are planning to go back to work once baby is over 6 months old. If you are considering going back to work and you're still breastfeeding, that doesn’t mean you have to stop. Many mums work full time and successfully breastfeed their babies. Chat to your Plunket nurse or health professional about ways to continue breastfeeding and keep up your milk supply.
