Oh, that sounds really great! How did you apply for that? Is it a local thing?

Oh wow, good on you. Our local Ormiston Trust used to run things like this and then it was taken over by Surestart. A fantastic scheme to get involved in Very happy

Yeah it's in my council

Have been meaning to volunteer for ages Smile

Contact your HV - if they don't have the project just now they might just start it up...

i wish i had help when i had Amy. i couldn`t get the knack of it,had no support what so ever and she was starving so it was the bottle for her. Maybe with support like this i could have managed Confused

That's fab!

I wish I'd had someone like you in my area to help me out when I was breastfeeding.

Good luck!
