Support is also offered to families of breastfed babies as I am flexible and happy to work around the feeds.  However, your baby might not be happy to last for longer than 3 hours without a feed and therefore mum will need to be close by, unless you are happy for me to give baby expressed or artificial milk by bottle, cup, sirynge or finger-feeding.

" My husband and I found the first few weeks very hard after our baby Thomas was born. The internet had so much conflicting information and we felt very confused. Mirka was amazing. She spend lots of time with us, checked Thomas, weight him, observed him feeding and answered all our questions."
