A new born baby’s first instinct is to feed. Full of all the natural nutrients and friendly bacteria a baby needs, nothing is quite as good as breast milk. But this website is about more than that alone. Here you can find out about the other benefits of breastfeeding for both mums and babies (not forgetting dad!). You can also read about other mums' experiences when they breastfed as well as those who chose to artificial formula feed* and now, if given the chance would breastfeed.

If you’re planning to have a baby, know someone who is and want to help, or are already a parent then take a good look around. You’ll find lots of facts, helpful advice and links to people and organisations in County Durham and Darlington who you can turn to for support. You can even have a laugh along the way if you visit the funny stories section!
