Those of you who follow my blog will know that I’m a year into exclusively breastfeeding Martha. A year and 6 days as I type! Toby was breastfed for 4 months, during which time he also took bottles, before being exclusively bottle fed from 4 months onwards. My two journeys couldn’t be more different from one another and that’s why I immediately said yes when Medela asked me to host a Big Breastfeeding Cafe on May 16th.
Hounded by keyboard warriors, I was so upset. Then I was angry. Then this morning I chose to make good the negative emotions that were swirling around my mind. I chose to focus that energy on being a friend to anyone who needs one.
With people jetting off on sunshine holidays the year round and the UK even experiencing some sweltering days during the summer, it’s important for breastfeeding mums to know how best to look after themselves and their baby when the temperature is soaring. I went to Lanzarote and Spain back in October and with most days reaching over 30 degrees, I wanted to make sure Martha and I were both okay. I’ve made this little video in association with Lansinoh to give you my top tips for breastfeeding in the heat. **This post was created as part of my role as a Lansinoh Ambassador.

You may remember that I wore and reviewed a stunning Tiffany Rose Rosa maternity dress over Christmas, so when it came to finding a beautiful nursing dress to wear at #BML16 and over the summer, I knew exactly where to go.
