Feeding Support

A crucial part of newborn sleep is ensuring that your baby is well fed.

 HushaBoo offers feeding support for parents who are struggling with any area of feeding whether you are breastfeeding, formula feeding or a mixture of both. Support is always offered with a non-judgemental approach. Whilst breastfeeding has so many benefits for both mother and baby, we understand that for whatever the reason, some babies need to be fed formula milk. We want to make sure that both you and your baby are happy by providing extensive, current advice to give you as much choice as possible.

Some common issues we can provide support and advice for include:

  • Incorrect latch leading to nipple soreness
  • Understanding supply and demand
  • Importance of responsive feeding
  • Position and attachment
  • Nipple confusion
  • Supply worries
  • Milk routines vs paced feeding
  • The use of hand massage/expression
  • Correct make up and storage of formula
  • Spotting tongue tie
