“My breasts aren’t big enough.”
You don’t need ‘big boobs’ to satisfy your baby; women of all shapes and sizes breastfeed and don’t have any problems producing enough milk.
“My baby’s too big for me to breastfeed.”
The size of your baby shouldn’t put you off breastfeeding and your body will respond to your baby’s appetite and not their size.
“My partner won’t be able to feed the baby.”
Your partner’s support during breastfeeding will be vital and they can still be involved with feeding. If you choose to express your milk, your partner will be able to use a bottle to feed your baby the breastmilk you have expressed, meaning everyone can feel part of the experience. You can also involve your partner with other bonding tasks like bathing, changing nappies and playing.
