Despite being one of those most natural things in the world, breastfeeding doesn’t always come naturally. It takes a lot of practice to get right, especially as a new mother.
You might find it easier to get your baby to latch while lying down or sitting upright. It can take patience, practice and the right position to get a good latch, but once your baby has, it can be a wonderful experience for both of you!
In honour of World Breastfeeding Week, we want to share 8 different breastfeeding positions with pictures to help you find the right one for you and your baby.
If you’re thinking of having a baby, or perhaps you’ve already got young children, then you’ll be thankful to discover the Healthy Baby Guide. It is a really comprehensive kit with all the essentials about protecting your family from harmful chemicals.
We spoke to Cassidy Randall from Made Safe to learn more about why they’ve produced this guide and what her top tips are for parents.

The Olympics have just started and already the medals are coming in! We’ve got our own gold medal to show off, winning the Best in Menstrual Care with our Natracare Ultra Extra Pads in The Green Parent magazine awards, as voted for by parents!
Green mums put the newest line of Natracare pads to the test for the awards. The success of the pads show that mums want and need a practical solution for their periods that is healthy for their bodies, whilst also looking out for the environment to protect future generations.
Natracare “Ultra Extra” natural pads have double protection, with an extra cushioned, absorbent layer, for additional absorbency and comfort at your time of the month.

A slimline shape with wings, and individually wrapped in biodegradable pockets, the pads are available in Normal, Super and Long.
The medals didn’t stop there! Our Baby Wipes won Silver in the category “Best for Baby” and our Make-up Removal wipes were in the Top 10 “Best Buys under £10”.

During pregnancy, we are naturally more aware of and concerned about the health and care of our bodies. It is during this time that we might begin to read labels more closely and question ingredients lists. Knowing what is in the products you are putting next to your skin and equally important, on your new baby’s skin is essential.
Many products available to new mothers, shockingly contain among other things, synthetics, super absorbents and chlorine bleached materials, all of which can have a negative impact, both on health and the environment.
