Mum’s Feedback

A few words from the mum’s we have supported:

I would just like to express my thanks to Cathy (who supported me just after my son was born) and Karen (at Bosom Buddies) who has supported me for the last for months while attending the group.  Both ladies have been extremely supportive and have always patiently listened to my queries (of which were numerous being a first time mum), providing me with good advice.  I have now gone back to work and am confidently managing to breast feed and express for my son who is now 5 months old.  I say confidently because without their support I’m not sure that I would have had the confidence to feed in public places or have obtained the knowledge to be able to manage expressing in the workplace.  The work of the FAB is invaluable and a massive support for mum’s! Many thanks again and good luck for the future.

Hello! I just wanted to write and say a big thank you for all the help and support I have had from FAB over the past 11 months both at my home, on the phone and especially at the Sure Start Children’s Centre in Gawthorpe, Ossett.  I am happy to say with your help I breastfed my son Thomas for 6 and a half months, he is now weaning successfully and has had no colds so far which I put down to the breastfeeding.

I do hope FAB carry on providing breastfeeding support in the area as I have unfortunately found too many people (midwives included) only too quick to try and get mothers feeding their babies from the bottle.  I had experience with one who said it would confuse a baby if it is given bottle and breast and you must choose, well for me this was absolute rubbish, Thomas had to have top up milk from birth as my milk didn’t come through until day 4, and he wouldn’t latch on to my breast at all, however with perseverance and a little help from a nipple shield he eventually latched on and fed from my breast successfully.  I hope other mothers would be encouraged by my story so feel free to print it or use it on your website.

Once again many thanks.
