The NHS recommends that mums exclusively breastfeed for around the first six months of their baby’s life.
But those that struggle – or choose not to breastfeed – can feel judged or guilty about it.
We invited five mums with a range of experiences to tell us how they found their own way to feed their babies.
For information, help and support on breastfeeding, try the NHS website.
