As a close friend or family member, you can help with breastfeeding by offering both practical and emotional support. For example, you could offer to:

  • help with daily chores (such as shopping, laundry, preparing meals, washing up, cleaning the kitchen, tidying, and vacuuming)
  • take the baby out for a walk in the fresh air
  • look after older siblings

For more ideas on how you can help with breastfeeding, please see the ‘How you can help your partner with breastfeeding’ section above.
