When it comes to all things newborn, midwives are a great source of knowledge and inspiration. In this episode I speak with Diane Haworth, a midwife and lactation consultant with many years of experience.
During our chat, we discussed topics including:-
- how to get baby to latch
- feeding your baby and ensuring they are not overfed
- dehydration and constipation and when to be concerned
Even though I’ve worked with babies over many years, I learnt a lot from Diane who had many excellent tips to share.
