I’m Tania I have 2 girls, Sophie and Emily, and live in Balclutha. I breast-fed both my girls for different lengths of time and felt it built a stronger bond between us, and helped me get to know each daughter in a different way. I have also had experience with bottle feeding formula too as some times things happen, but we do the best for our babies and there’s no right or wrong option for how you choose to feed. Plus who doesn’t love tired baby snuggles? I’m a breast feeding peer counsellor because I have a passion to help support other mums out there that are finding breast feeding to be difficult or who just want support or a coffee and chat in other areas to do with family or baby. I’m here to listen! Thanks Tania
