Video: Top Breastfeeding Essentials

ruth crilly

A very Happy New Year to you all. I’m kicking off 2016 with my first bit of video content for The Uphill: My Top Breastfeeding Essentials. I hope that you enjoy this and that it provides another little “dimension” to the blog – I’m aiming to try and make one video a month that’s just focused on Mum and baby stuff, so do let me know what you’d like to see in the next video and I shall do my best to accommodate!

You may remember that I did a written post on my breastfeeding essentials a few months ago – if you want to read that then please click here.
