First published in News

A NEW group has been set up in York to offer advice to mums on breast feeding.

The new Tang Hall Nurture group meets at the Avenues Children’s Centre from 10am until 11.30am on Tuesdays.

Lynn Fitzharris, breastfeeding lead for the City of York Health Visiting Team, said: “We are continuing to promote breastfeeding through the Nurture breastfeeding support groups, which offer continued support to mums with breastfeeding problems.

“We are delighted to launch our third Nurture group at the Avenues Children’s Centre providing support in the Tang Hall area of the city.

“Mums can attend with babies for help with breastfeeding problems including attachment and positioning, alongside advice on dealing with thrush and tongue tie. It is a relaxed and friendly group. Mums-to-be are also welcome to attend along with partners and grandparents.”

Nurture was first established in Acomb in 2011 and a second group was set up in spring 2013 in Clifton.

The groups provide support to mums in areas where there was previously no access to support and low breastfeeding rates.

Other support groups are at Explore in Acomb, on Friday from 10am to 11.30am and Clifton Children’s Centre on Thursdays from 1pm to 2.30pm.

Well....the world hasn't gone mad.
As a mother that it took to having my 3rd baby to finally have the confidence & support to breastfeed, I think this group & all the others actually a really good idea.
The fact that breastfeeding is free along with all the other amazing health benefits for mum & baby is a wonder why there are low rates in the York area. So if a group like this is available to help support the difficulties breastfeeding mums have that really want to do it...then I am all for it! The article hasn't mentioned the little sensory floor space for the babies the ladies put out for the session too!
Go boobies ( . ) ( . )

(I am all for formula too & as long as baby is fed and happy...be good if there was support with that too)

I went through months of hell believing I wasn't good enough all because of the pressure a professional breastfeeding 'support' put on me. It was only when I stopped breastfeeding that myself and my baby felt relaxed enough to bond properly. Good for you if you can breastfeed but I think these so called professionals should understand that the pressure they put on anxious new mums is very damaging. They were of no support to me and my baby. I'm glad I listened to my instincts. My formula fed child is very healthy, incredibly happy and has lost out on nothing. Don't get me wrong, I am all for breastfeeding, just not the way professionals deal with it in my experience.

Here's some words - some mothers don't find it instantly natural to breast feed their baby and they want to do is breast feed. When they struggle they sometimes give up and sometimes feel like a failure and then suffer from depression. These amazing support groups show and give advice to mothers telling them about different techniques to feed. All babies are fed differently and these support groups are to tell them that and give them the confidence they need. I could go on but I think that's enough words.

It was only when I stopped breastfeeding that myself and my baby felt relaxed enough to bond properly. Good for you if you can breastfeed but I think these so called professionals should understand that the pressure they put on anxious new mums is very damaging. They were of no support to me and my baby. I'm glad I listened to my instincts. My formula fed child is very healthy, incredibly happy and has lost out on nothing. Don't get me wrong, I am all for breastfeeding, just not the way professionals deal with it in my experience.
That's a shame you felt like that. I couldn't fault the support I got while in hospital. Never intended to breastfeed at all until the minute I gave birth! I too have a very happy and healthy 9 year old who was also formula fed. And I was not at all pressured into breastfeeding this time round just wanted to give it a go and I'm glad I did! Personally I don't think either one is better than the other! I know lots of children who were breastfed and have lots of problems like asthma and food allergies etc. as long as baby is fed and happy that's all that matters. I think it's awful how breastfeeding mums get frowned upon because they are feeding their child in public! And I think what bighairheads was saying is that going to one of these groups gets you away from all the uneducated idiots that think it's wrong!! Oh and just for the record smudge!! My child isn't called tarquin!!!! But I am a yummy mummy! Cheers pal!!😉
