The following websites offer information and advice about breastfeeding and breastfeeding issues.

Off to a good start: all you need to know about breastfeeding your baby

This comprehensive booklet has been tailored especially for mothers in Northern Ireland. It is distributed to women at their antenatal visits, but if you haven’t received a copy, you can download a PDF here.

Northern Ireland has a number of breastfeeding support groups. They offer friendship, advice and a cup of tea or coffee! They’re especially helpful if you have a concern about breastfeeding, or if you don’t feel you know many mothers who are breastfeeding. Your maternity hospital, your midwife or your health visitor should know where your nearest group is. Alternatively, look here for a list.

You can also talk to other parents online. E-mailing lists are collections of people who discuss a common interest via e-mail. Try BreastfeedingUK for a friendly welcome. To join, send a blank e-mail to:
