Learn About Breastfeeding

#TheTruthIs everyone's feeding experience is different, and that's ok. 

Whatever happens, we've got you!

Head to our Parent Room, where real parents tell us the truth about their breastfeeding experience.

Mum, you're amazing!

From about 16-22 weeks into your pregnancy, your breasts start producing colostrum - concentrated milk that’s packed with nutrients and disease-beating antibodies.

Once your baby arrives, you and your wonderful breasts provide everything they need for the best start in life, and while breastfeeding may be one of the most natural things in the world, mums tell us that sometimes it’s hard to get the hang of.

Designed with mums in mind

Our breastfeeding range is created alongside ideas, insights and feedback from real breastfeeding mums.

We believe that every mum is a special, limited edition special. And we know that breastfeeding requires a unique kind of love and commitment.

Inspired by that love and commitment, our Made for Me™ range lets you treat yourself like the true wonder you are.

It includes a range of easy-to-use breast pumps, a soothing nipple cream and super absorbent breast pads – all designed to keep you comfortable and help you to be confident enough to rise to the awesome challenge of being a mum. 

But I don't need anything to breastfeed, do I?

Just you, your boobs and some breast pads should cover the basics.

If you're able to, guidelines suggest that you should exclusively breastfeed your baby for the first six weeks to help establish a good latch and a steady routine.


Then, once you’re comfortable, you can think about introducing expressing if you want to.

Using a breast pump to build up a supply of milk in the fridge or freezer can be super helpful. And if for whatever reason your baby can’t feed directly from your breast or you want help from a partner, friend, or family member, expressing means that your baby can still get all the great benefits of your breast milk while feeding from a bottle!

Anything they can do… you can do pumping

Introducing the wearable breast pump that puts you in control.

Versatile, discreet, wearable pumping designed to complement your lifestyle, no matter where you are on your feeding journey.
