Some advice and information about nutrition in pregnancy and for infants

I breastfed my son until forced separation when I had to be hospitalised for puerperal psychosis - in retrospect this was cruel for both of us and a pleasure I resent being taken away from us.
However, I see my baby niece and god-daughter both thriving on bottle feeding so I have an open mind to feeding. I feel it has to be individual choice and mothers need support either way, although I would encourage and recommend breast-feeding if you are able, and seek support if you are struggling with it.

There is a wealth of useful information at on many aspects of feeding for both mum-to-be and babies.
