    Lightbulb ABA sugestions for the more common breastfeeding problems.

    Please note that I strongly suggest that you speak with an ABA counsellor, your Child health nurse, midwife, lactation consultant or GP if you are concerned at all about any troubles you are experiencing. The following information is a "first step" type of thing that you can try until you can contact someone for further suggestions.

    You can contact an ABA counsellor 7 days a week, 24 hours day on the following number:



    BREASTFEEDING HELPLINE - 1800 mum 2 mum (1800 686 2 68)
    This is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you don't have to be a member to call.

    Further information can also be found on the Australian Breastfeeding Association website.

    Worried that you don't have enough milk?
    Not enough milk?
    Increasing your supply
    Galactagogues (substances claimed to increase supply)

    Engorgement & coping with an oversupply.
    There is some great information on the ABA website here:
    Engorgement
    Too much milk

    Sore & Cracked Nipples.
    Sore/cracked nipples

    REMEMBER BREASTFEEDING SHOULD NOT HURT, IF IT DOES, ASK FOR HELP!
