Correction: mum tested positive 4 days before pumping this!

Mums breastmilk changed to supply baby with what they needed.

This is one reason why many mothers continue to breastfeed even though they find it hard, or experience negative emotions. Because, instinctively we know it is amazing and it is not replicable. When you pump, you can literally see it.

Aversion is hard but it is up to a mother if she continues to breastfeed and she should be supported to do so. And validated and acknowledged. You don't have to love breastfeeding or pumping to do it. The reality is a range of emotions can be experienced.

Never underestimate what you are doing!



Have you heard of this? There may be no need to spend ages back patting, try this position to help naturally.
There's a lot more to anatomy and wind than just this of course, but it certainly can't do any harm to try!

The amazing Shel Banks IBCLC Lactation Consultant and Feed Sleep Bond are to thank for this golden nugget of info. If you don't follow them, go go go!

How is everyone coping?Covid 19 has definitely changed the way I have had to work over the last few months, I may not be able to get out into the world at the moment and visit all the lovely mums to be and meet those new babies but I will always be here for any advice you may require.


I received this message from one of my lovely clients this morning. This is why I love my work.

Hi Dani! Little man turned 1 last week. Hope you are well. I think of you often and thank you for all you did in my time of need. Safe to say I love being a mummy now! I will come your way when I have by next one 🤣😬xx


Today is the last day with my little friend. We have spent 6 nights a week for the last 11 weeks working towards a workable routine and lengthening nighttime sleep.

She is now able to self settle to sleep in the day , with some lovely awake time, feeds and good naps which is enabling her to sleep from 7.30-5+ with a quick resettle and then she’s awake from 6.30/7.

Hopefully she is good for her mummy on holiday and she continues to improve, if not I will be on hand with advice whilst they are away or ready to make a few tweaks and get them back on track when they return 😊


I will be trying this one tonight !

The sun is out☀️happy hormones time ,increasing the release of serotonin boosts your mood and helps you focus.

Enjoy the sunlight people get your dose of vitamin D and help those babies distinguish between night and day and improve their sleep .


The last week has been spent helping a mum with her second baby who has been suffering with reflux and a new mum with a two week old getting her a tongue tie diagnosis, the tongue tie snipped and finally starting to effectively breastfeed without pain and a baby that is being satisfied by a fuller feed.

It’s been a very rewarding week, helping other mothers at a time of need and having the odd baby snuggle 😊


I had a lovely day spent with two little ones of 20 weeks(13 weeks corrected) , checking out how they have been implementing the sleep training we worked on last week. They are all working as a great team and the babies are settling really well with very little involvement from mum and dad.


Currently helping a new mum with her 7 day old, already putting the knowledge gained at the breastfeeding course to use😊


Breastfeeding and feeding update course booked for Saturday 😊


My certificate has finally arrived 😊

True life: There was SO much about breastfeeding I didn't know

True life: There was SO much about breastfeeding I didn't know I didn't realize that a perfect latch wasn't a given, that it was something the two of us would learn together.

I had a lovely visit along the butterfly trail this week with my little friend for the day, whilst his mummy prepares for the arrival of his baby sister in a couple of weeks. It’s a fantastic place with lots of creatures to find, places to explore and space for den building .


This weekend will be spent reading all my books on sleep, nutrition, breastfeeding and behaviour and understanding their effects on sleep in preparation for my assignment due at the end of the month. It’s been great updating my knowledge and looking at all the new research.

'It's like being blinded by the sun but not being able to feel its heat' - Guest Blog from Winnie Mouses Mama | Kicks Count As a new mother, I embraced the chaos that a newborn could bring. I laughed at urine stained bedsheets. I smiled at 2am feeds. I rejoiced at staying in my pyjamas for two weeks in a bubble of bliss. I was a mummy and this tiny, innocent little being was everything I had ever wanted. …


Goodnight and sweet dreams everyone x
