Best Breastfeeding Tip: Chicken Wings and Cabbage!

Visitor's Best Breastfeeding Tip: Before my baby was born a friend who was also a trained Doula said to me: 'All you need to remember is Chicken Wings and Cabbage!'

Slightly confused I asked if this was some diet to ensure a good milk supply, she said: 'No, when the baby is latching on cradle in one and and use your other as a chicken wing to pull baby in close to you. Have some cabbage in supple as when your nipples get sore cold cabbage can be slotted into your bra to relieve your boobie.'

The Chicken wing technique worked a treat and we are still breastfeeding heading for six months! Never needed to use the cabbage but suggested it to others and they said it worked brilliantly.

Thank you to Jane.
