Breastfeeding provides everything your baby needs for the first 6 months of their life. After 6 months babies need food as well as milk, but breast milk is still important during the first 2 years of your baby's life and beyond. Breastfeeding is also a new skill you and your baby have to learn together, and it isn’t always easy, which is why we’re here for you with lots of advice and information on getting started, keeping going, and overcoming any problems that crop up along the way.
