Baby feeding and human lactation Health and Information Service.

We aim to:

  • Support families in their infant feeding decisions.
  • Empower mothers and families to manage baby feeding difficulties.
  • Inform about breast function in relation to baby feeding.

Breastfeeding works well when:

  • Breasts function
  • Baby can attach, suckle and remove milk from the breast

When one or both of these seem to NOT be working, knowing how breasts work can help decide what to do.


Purchase ‘Breasts Work’ brochure, posters and other products from the online shop.

We bring information from the best available research.

Insights based on evidence helps manage  individual needs.

Stories are from parents who have agreed to help others learn from their experiences.

The blog spot provides opportunity to share your story, ask questions and comment.
