  1. We’ve been exclusively breastfeeding for 5 and a half months, but in two weeks I go back to work 3 days a week. I struggle to get baby to accept a bottle, any advise on how to make this transition easier for us, and how to maintain our BF relationship around work would be greatly appreciated. It’s really worrying and upsetting me.

      • Hi Stephanie, thanks for your question. I think you should try and get to your local breastfeeding support group, where a Peer Supporter can help you with your question. Please don’t stress or worry, call your local drop-in and they can give you support. Sara

  3. I’m a new mum who is fortunate enough to breastfeeding my little girl. I hope to breastfeed to at least a year. There are mums out there who breastfeed beyond this. Are there many benefits to breastfeeding beyond a year?
