"Sure Start Summer House feeding group"

About: Summer House Children's centre

(as a service user),

We have been coming to this group for 6 months now since Amelia was 4 weeks old. The support I have received has been exceptional throughout the whole time. I have been given advice on a wide range of issues not just breast feeding. The team were particularly helpful when my milk like supply reduced down when Amelia started sleeping through. The gave me lots of different ideas about how to do increase my supply & were very supportive through this difficult period. They were always on the end of the phone between groups to help. The also referred me onto the breast feeding nurse specialist when everything they had suggested didn't help. Without this group I would have given up breastfeeding at 5 months, so I am extremely grateful to be still feeding at 7 months
