But only if baby is exclusively breastfeed (i.e nothing other than breastmilk is given to your child)
Only if baby is under six month’s of age
Only if mother’s menstrual cycle has not yet started back again after labour
This method is not 100% reliable.
You could still get pregnant even if you are breastfeeding as ovulation can occur before your period starts back.
A more reliable method of birth control is the "mini-pill" contraceptive prescribed by your doctor which is a progestogen-only pill . Avoid contraceptive pills containing oestrogen while you are breastfeeding.
1. Stay calm. If you start to feel uptight or wound up, take a break for a few minutes and then try again. Baby may be able to pick up on your anxiety.
2. Don't place high expectations on yourself. It can take a while before your milk flows, before baby gets the hang of latching, and before you get things sorted.
3. While you are still in the hospital or maternity ward, make sure the nurse helps you to latch baby every time you feed. Ring your buzzer to call the nurse.
4. Breastfeeding does hurt to start with. As the baby draws your nipple into their mouth it can be a painful tearful experience for mum. The pain should stop about thirty seconds or so after baby is latched. It may be like this for 3 or 4 days with a newborn. If the problem persists - seek help from your midwife, plunket nurse, doctor or a lactation consultant.
5. The key to successful breastfeeding is making sure baby has the correct latch. Put baby on your breast when their mouth is open wide and full. Pull baby's head to your breast - don't drop your nipple down to baby as you will get sore shoulders and back.
6. When baby is latched their lips will be covering your breast in a "K" shape that looks like the K on Cellog's Special K cereal.
7. Always use lots of nipple cream after every feed. This is really important when you are first starting to breastfeed, so put some in nipple cream when packing your hospital bag. Apply after every feed.
8. If baby has an incorrect latch or if baby is not suckling properly, it is very easy to get cracked, grazed and very sore nipples. Always apply the nipple cream. And if baby is not latched comfortably on you, break the seal of their lips using your finger and start again.
9. If you are getting a sore neck, shoulders, or back it could be due to the weight of supporting baby in your arms while breastfeeding. You could invest in a special breastfeeding pillow which can ease the pressure on you. Or try some pillows or cushions from your bed to raise baby up.
10. It can take a while before you get co-ordinated enough to breastfeed discretely. Initially it will be easier if you have an open front top, and maternity bra. Then you can open the nursing bra cup and feed baby.
11. Be prepared with breast pads. Some mothers have a fast flow and quick letdown, and leak alot. Some mothers don't leak at all. You could try some disposable breast pads, or to save some money have a look at reusable breast pads.
12. Be prepared for the time it takes to breastfeed. Some baby's will take 20 minutes or longer to feed at your breast. And you will have to do this regularly through out the day. Most newborn baby's feed 3 to 4 hourly to start with. Your baby is relying on you for all their nutrition.
13. Get plenty of rest.
14. Drink plenty of water - have a glass of water after every breast feed.
15. And eat well - eat meals with lots of protein.
16. If you have another child, pack a lunch box, drink bottle and special activity box (stickers, colouring in, etc) for them first thing in the morning. Keep this at a level that the child can reach. Bring this out when you are feeding baby to amuse the older child while you are breastfeeding.
17. When you have got through the first two weeks or so, breastfeeding should be an enjoyable experience for you. Its a cheap and quick way to feed a baby.
18. If breastfeeding does not work for you, don't beat yourself up about it. It is important that baby is happy and healthy, and that mum is happy and healthy too.

For professional medical advice please speak with your midwife, plunket nurse, doctor, specialist, or lactation consultant.

But being a WAHM is so hard! This week I have really struggled to stay on top of the chaos, run the business and remain in control! I have managed to display a professional cool & calm friendly face to my customers, but behind the scenes have been a bit crazy this week!
Every day this week I feel like I have run around like a headless chicken but slowly got things accomplished. (Business tasks anyway). Housework was non-existent, meals were pretty basic. And I still had late nights trying to get all the business work done. And then I still have Parental Guilt, or Mothering Guilt that I wasn't the best mother, that I didnt read enough stories this week, that I was rushing my children. (I did try I did try I did try)
I'm seriously considering employing some casual help.
But my point is...ummm... I think if I was still working in the office, my life wouldn't be as chaotic. I would have a pretty fixed routine. Get up, feed children, drop to preschool/care, go to work, come home, play feed bath bed story children, clean up house, watch tv, go to bed. That sounds like bliss! Today I am looking enviously at working mums!

One thing that they didn't tell me when I went to my antenatal classes in Auckland, is that when you are a breastfeeding mum, you will need to be wearing a nursing bra 24 hours a day! All that milk being produced in your breasts means they need support, you'll need to wear a maternity bra. Plus mums also sleep in their maternity bra, to hold breast pads in place.
Well, I have good news!! We now have the Hotmilk Maternity PJs (Breastfeeding Sleep Wear online) now in stock and online. They are made from gorgeous comfy fabrics with a beautiful print design that matches on the pants and top.
You can choose from a camisole style feeding top, or a three quarter length sleeve feeding top. Both of the feeding top styles have a built in shelf support nursing bra - with drop down cups for breastfeeding and nursing. I found these are a really good fit shelf nursing bra, and they can hold breast pads too.
I must say, it makes a NICE change to wear PJs to bed without having to wear my nursing bra to bed aswell. (though having said that, my Maternity Bra are all Hotmilk Bras which are lovely... just nice to take it off once in a while!!)
With these new Maternity PJs (Breastfeeding Sleepwear ) you can mix and match sizes, or you can just buy the top if you want to. These feeding tops make a good addition to your choice of breastfeeding clothing and we are including them in our Breastfeeding Clothing online selection.
For more information, please view the Breastmates website. We ship worldwide of course!

I've started researching into it. Its going to be a long project but worth it.
Can't wait to get started. I will of course share it with you, just when I have something more concrete to tell you.
And if that Copy Cat person is snooping, its because you were a Copy Cat that you have given me ambition to be better. ;-) Cheers
Anyway, the three women that I was speaking to, they were all having surrogate babies.
This just made me stop and think for a moment, these women would have been on such a roller coaster stressful journey in order to have a baby, and what an overwhelming wonderful gift that another was able to carry a baby for them. Makes me appreciate my own 2 children!
I am so proud that these ladies were then starting to prepare for breastfeeding, for when their baby's arrive in a few months time.
They were purchasing breast pumps online from me (the choice was the Medela Swing electric breast pump), maternity bras, and breast pads. That's beside the point though.
I have since heard that all of these women have started to produce breast mik - even though they do not yet have a baby in their arms. So they are "pumping and dumping" all this milk. Even if they saved the breast milk and froze it, it would have expired by the time baby arrives. (See our breast milk storage guides online). Its a shame we don't have a milk bank in New Zealand to save wasting all the boobie juice.
Anyway, huge Thumbs Up to you 3 ladies. If you are reading this blog, just now that I am so inspired and proud of you. (keep me updated!!)
And also I heard recently that a lot of mothers are looking into relactation. Thats when you start breastfeeding again, after you had stopped or after you had weaned your baby. With the contaminated milk in formula, a lot of mothers are looking at relactation to feed their baby naturally again!

We had contact, she apologised and was embarrassed.
But in hindsight, it is quite a compliment that she chose to copy me. It means that she likes what she sees me doing. I don't see her, or her business as a threat. But it gives me more incentive to do everything better than ever.
I have such a huge customer database, and loyal following. So I just want to take a minute and really do want to thank all you lovely ladies for your support and encouragement in regards to Breastmates.
Some days I wonder if I am doing the right thing, I wonder if my customers are happy, and I wonder what the future will hold.
It really makes my day when I get an order from someone who says “my friend at coffee group told me about you”, or if someone sends me a link to a forum or blog that has been talking about my service. That is the highest compliment I could ever receive.
These Maternity Pyjamas come with either a camisole nursing top (with inner shelf support feeding bra) or a sleeved top. You can mix and match sizes for your set.
Stylish night wear for you to enjoy!
These are very comfortable pj's which make great sleepwear for maternity, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.
This maternity feeding bra is a deep purple colour, and is just stunning! It features a moulded cup, which is great for wearing under fitted t-shirts.
This would be the recommended bra choice for wearing under black tshirts.
This feeding bra comes with matching knickers.
The nursing bra sizes are 10B to 16F, and the lingerie is suitable for wearing during pregnancy and after birth.
For more information and product choices, visit our website http://www.breastmates.co.nz/
This new style has been designed with super support in the cups, the straps, and within the back band. This style goes up to G cup size, and up to 20 body size. Its nice to be able to provide fuller cup sizes for larger breast sizes.
The maternity bras all have the drop down cups for breastfeeding, and have also been designed to support the breast when the cup is open during feeding.
Okay, so the maternity bras have good support and a range of sizes. But the best news is that the fabric and styling is FUNKY bras! With cute matching briefs! I love these ones. You might find the maternity bra so cool you will want to flash it when breast feeding baby!!
Please view more information on our website http://www.breastmates.co.nz/
This is a comment I received from a customer: Just to let you know that i am so glad someone has finally got larger sized maternity bra’s. I got Mastitis from using bra’s that were too small when I am a 20F and I could not find a bra. Next time I am pregnant I will know where to come.

Don't worry. All baby's are different. If your baby is latching and feeding, just sit back and relax and enjoy the quiet bonding time with your baby.
If your baby has plenty of wet nappies and is sleeping well, not waking up hungry in the middle of a sleep, then you are doing a fine job!
There are no set rules for the about of time it takes to breastfeed baby, all babies and mothers milk flow are different.
Many babies feed for around 10 to 20 minutes per breast. Some babies take 5 minutes per breast.
Watch your baby and make sure that your baby empties out one breast before you offer to nurse baby from the second breast.
if your baby is feeding properly, watch for their jaw going suck-swallow-suck-swallow.
if your baby is just on your nipple for comfort, and not feeding well, you will see baby just suck suck suck and not swallow. Becareful as this can cause nipple damage.
For more information about breastfeeding see our website.
It is normal for newborns to loose weight in the first few days following birth, but most babies gain weight to go back up to their original birth weight after the first 2 weeks. After that, babies usually gain around 100 grams to 200 grams a week, for the first few months.
In the first weeks after birth, most babies will need to have around eight + breast feeds in a 24 hour period.
Breastfeeding times may not be evenly spaced throughout the day. It is very common for babies to have cluster feeds in the evening.
Initially, newborn babies will have around six wet nappies per day, at around 1-2 bowel motions a day, until they get to around 6 weeks of age. This shows that baby is getting plenty of breast milk. After then the number of nappy changes will decrease a little.
If baby gets a good feed of breast milk, then baby will sleep well and feed well, and eventually the number of times that you have to feed baby during the day/night will drop back and you will get into a routine.
A baby who is wetting nappies frequently, gaining weight, and thriving is getting enough milk.
By 8 or 9 weeks of age, a baby will start going longer between feeding times.
By 12 weeks of age, baby will probably be in a pattern of around six breastfeeds during a 24 hour period. Though this number will be different depending on the size of your baby etc.
But if you are not sure - you should seek advice from your midwife, plunket nurse, doctor or medical professional.

- One alcoholic drink consumed over an hour takes two or three hours for the female liver to process. Three to four drinks consumed over an hour would take the liver six to 12 hours to detoxify!
- The concentration of alcohol in breast milk is the same or slightly higher than the level in mother's blood
If you do decide to drink while breastfeeding, here are some tips for minimizing the impact of alcohol on your breast fed baby:
- Always drink slowly and space out your drinks and the time you drink them
- Drink extra water, eat before and during the time you drink alcohol
- Limit the number of drinks you have
- Choose low alcohol drinks
- Try diluting your drinks and sipping them
- You can express breast milk with a breast pump, and store that milk to use if you have been drinking, rather than breastfeeding while drinking.
- If you have been drinking, express breast milk and discard this after drinking. Feed baby with milk you have expressed off before you had a drink.
- Pump and dump
- Wait at least two to three hours after consuming the last drink, before breastfeeding your baby at your breast.

I thought it would be a good time to explain some of the great features of the Medela Swing Electric breast pump.
This is the only electric breast pump online, that most closely resembles real breast feeding. It has a uniquely patented 2-phase expression so that it stimulates milk let down and then expresses like a baby sucking.
Here is how you work the breast pump:
Swtich on the breastpump by pressing the on/off button. The pump will begin pumping in the Stimulation phase. Adjust the vacuum during pumping to your comfort level by pressing the increase (+) or decrease (-) buttons. Once your milk starts to flow or you sense milk ejection, press the letdown button to switch to the Expression Phase. if you do not press the let-down button, the pump will automatically switch to the expression phase after two minutes.
Set your Maximum Comfort Vacuum which is the highest vacuum you can use while still feeling comfortable (this is different for every mother). To find your Maximum Comfort Vacuum increase the vacuum until pumping feels slightly uncomfortable (not painful) and then decrease it slightly.
Research has shown that you will pump more efficiently - meaning you get more milk in less time - when pumping at the Maximum Comfort Vacuum in the Expression Phase using this swing pump.You can enquire online about ordering this breast pump, and then we will reply to you.

If you are interested in one of these, contact me and I'll hook you up.
A correctly fitted breastshield avoids compression of any milk ducts during breast pumping to ensure optimal breast emptying and maximum milk output.
Your breastshield is the right size if you answer to the following questions is YES
1. is your nipple moving freely in the tunnel?
2. Is minimal or no areolar tissue being pulled into the tunnel of the breastshield?
3. Do you see a gentle, rhythmical motion in the breast which each cycle of the pump?
4. Do you feel the breast emptying all over?
5. Is your nipple pain free?
If your answer to any of the above questions is NO try a larger breastshield.
Medela Breast Shields are available in smaller and larger sizes, than the size that comes with the original pump. Suitable for mini electric breast pump, mini electric plus, swing breast pump, manual breast pump, and advanced set
For more information view our Breastmates breastfeeding website.
If problems or pain occur consult your midwive, lactation consultant, or doctor.

Solution? Well, something that I love, and my customers love, is "Lucas Papaw Ointment".
(Also known as pawpaw ointment depending on how you want to spell it).
Its made from naturally fermented papaw and is a proven remedy for over 80 years.
If you use it at every nappy change, it will keep baby's sensitive skin soft, clear, and rash free. This is also a handy cream to have for itchy bites and sores etc..
Solution: the standard sized breast shield that came with the medela mini electric breast pump that she purchased was too small. The funnel part on the breast shield. All these medela breast pumps are sold in the box with a 24mm size breastshield. Sometimes women don't fit this, and need a larger or smaller sized shield to ensure pumping is not painful. We stock the medela breast shields in 21mm (small), and 27mm, 30mm size. Unfortunately this is not really something you can know in advance, you have to try first. We do also stock all the online spare parts and accessories for the medela breast pumps also.
The problems are that the nipple rubs on the sides of the breast shield when it is drawn in with the pumping motion of the breast pump. We have some more information on the problems of breast pumps and breast shields, and a guide to the correct sizing of breast shields on our breastfeeding website here http://www.breastmates.co.nz/medela_breast_shields.html
The customer had had a really hard time trying to find the correct product. She had been into chemists and they sold her the wrong thing. (they sold her nipple protectors for goodness sake!). These shops did also sell the same breast pump that she had originally brought, yet they didnt know anything about correctly sizing breast shields.
This is the type of terrible advice, and terrible service, that I had experienced years ago... which had led me to start this business from home. I am proud to be able to give good advice, and I know about my products I sell!!
The other good thing about running this business from home, in particular for this customer, is that her husband was able to call around tonight (Friday 7.45pm) to collect it, when all the other shops were shut!!

I received some wonderful feedback from a happy Breastmates customer who had recently purchased some sexy hotmilk maternity lingerie.
This is an extract from her message..."I feel only bigger and greater things for you, the only limitations for you will be fears and doubts, and let me assure you, they are unfounded, you should write a model for giving outstanding customer service and sell it. You’ll make a million dollars"
That message just made my day! I don't think my customer service is particularly outstanding, I just do what I would expect myself if I was ordering.
Being a busy Work-at-home-Mum with my home business for breastfeeding products (that was started with only a budget of $50, no capital input, no technical input, and has been self funding) here are my top tips for good customer service, particularly for those that run an internet based business.
Be honest with your customers.
Tell your customers when their order has been sent out, so that they know everything has been processed and that their items are on the way.
If something is out of stock, tell your customer there will be a delay, and when they can expect it. If something has sold out completely, tell your customer. Offer them a refund.
Treat customers how you would like to be treated yourself.
Take pride in the presentation of your products, and the customers order. A little tissue paper and ribbon makes a million times difference when they receive their order. (where appropriate of course).
Enjoy your work, and your customers will know that you love what you do.
Customer enquiries are never a burden, give advice and honest answers.

It is the most highly regarded brand of nipple cream for breastfeeding moms.
It heals cracked, grazed, cut, sore nipples. If you apply after every breast feed, then sore nipples will soon heal.
Make sure you are latching baby correctly.
Our tip for applying nipple cream is: while breastfeeding your baby, keep the tube of purelan in your pocket. Then it warms up and is alot easier to apply.
You can buy nipple cream online at Breastmates breastfeeding store. You can also buy online a range of breast pumps and other nursing products.
Info provided by Breastmates breastfeeding store. WAHM to 2 babies. More information can be found here http://www.breastmates.co.nz/Articles_Breastfeeding_Nursing.html
Pack your bag at least 4 weeks before your due date!
Try to have your bag’s packed by around 36 weeks of pregnancy. This will make you feel more relaxed knowing you have got everything you need for your baby’s birth. If you take something out before you leave for the hospital stick a note to the top of your bag to remind you or your partner that it is missing. Check with your hospital or birthing centre to see what they have available for your use while in labour, you may be able to take in your favourite CD’s if they have a music system.
A comfortable, loose fitting nightie or T-shirt that you can wear through labour and give birth in. You should expect that this may get covered in the fluids from delivery.
A water bottle/sweets/glucose tablets.
Any snacks or drinks you would like to have on hand.
Your birth plan
Warm socks (your feet may get very cold during labour). You should be prepared to throw these away after the delivery.
Massage equipment – oils, creams.
Heat pack to relieve back pain
Camera and video camera
CD’s to play during the birth of your baby.
Drinks and snacks for your partner.
Phone cards and coins for making calls.

Before Baby Prep
Read one or two good breastfeeding books, a great one is published by La Leche League.
Attend a seminar on breastfeeding, or antental classes which give advice on breastfeeding.
You will need to buy: plenty of quality breast pads, hand towels or flannels for spills and squirts, a good breastfeeding bra fitted late in pregnancy, and a breastfeeding pillow. Nipple cream is also suggested in case of cracked or grazed nipples which can occur in the early days. Breastfeeding singlets or nursing tops are also a good way to maintain discretion and help to breastfeed discretely.
You will need to use a chair that supports you and the baby while you are feeding. The legs of the chair should not be too high off the ground, and the chair arms need to be quite low to allow you to hold the baby and be comfortable while feeding. Your feet should sit flat on the floor while feeding.
We have some more tips and advice for breastfeeding on our website. Continue to read our Prepare for Breastfeeding advice here.

The "Mothers Minder" is a silicone wristband, but it is designed with the numbers 1 to 12 embossed around the edge, and has a little slider thing that you slide around the wristband. (this doesn't fall off either).
So to use it, you feed baby and then slide the timer to whatever time it is. And you switch the band to your left or right wrist depending on what boob you just breastfed from. The band then reminds you what time you last fed baby, and you can keep track of feeds. It makes life a lot easier with breastfeeding a new born!
This makes an AWESOME baby shower gift!!
Of the three styles, I would have to say that they are all comfy and very supportive (for my figure!) However the Maternity Camisole is SUPER SUPER comfy, I just love it!!
The knickers are a great fit, and made from lovely soft cotton. The camisole is cotton, and also has a built in shelf support nursing bra. Breast is supported in an "A" frame cup, so when you open the cup to feed baby you are still very supported. I can see that this Cami will be a really great breast feeding singlet. Either under layers of clothing (and to keep tummy warm and covered) or it could also be worn on its own.
The maternity camisole is a great set, I love the fabrics, the colour, the lace. And the gorgeous little hanging pearl that is on the camisole and the knickers. Very sweet!
The HOTmilk sexy maternity lingerie that we have in store and online at our breastfeeding site has wonderful special features - as well as being sexy maternity lingerie suitable for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- No underwire restricting milk flow and chanes in breast size or volume.
- Soft comfy cotton linings.
- Seam constrction ensures no rubbing or chaffing.
- No fuss one handed maternity clips.
- Strong power fabrics in back panels for extra support.
- Wider bra straps and back adjusters in the fuller cup sizes.
- Extra set of hooks at the back provides extension for added comfort.
- Fabrics and laces are carefully chosen to provide maximum support and comfort.
- Matching underwear and knickers to dazzle.
- Beautiful feminine styling with every attention to detail.
