Breastfeeding is best for babies. It provides all the nutritional health benefits as Mother Nature intended. In preparation for and during breastfeeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet.
Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breast feed is difficult. If you're thinking about bottle feeding your baby, always seek professional advice first - from your doctor, midwife or healthcare professional. When using infant formula, you should always follow the manufacturer's instructions for use carefully: unnecessary or improper use may make your baby ill. The social and financial implications, such as convenience and cost to a household over time, should also be considered.

Happy on the inside, shows on the outside
We believe that a healthy, happy baby starts with a healthy, happy tum. When baby is nourished on the inside, they can play, explore and learn at their own natural pace. We support mums to nurture their baby’s individuality, encouraging each baby to develop and grow in their own unique way.
Instilling confidence with guidance and inspiration
We help mums as they navigate through motherhood and grow with their babies. Our support services encourage a mum to trust her natural intuition, offering reassurance and inspiration whenever she needs it and instilling confidence in her everyday choices.
