Format: DVD
This DVD is amazing. I was struggling to breastfeed, and had received some pretty feeble advice/help from a variety of midwives (never seem to see the same one twice) and also completely rubbish advice from the NCT, who advised us that our babes would naturally find the nipple on their own and latch themselves on with no help from mother. Clare Byam-Cook's advice makes perfect sense and the DVD is thorough and easy to follow. I'd been feeling like a complete failure, and was an emotional wreck after 2 weeks of failed Breastfeeding, this DVD had us successfully feeding within a few seconds. Every first time mum should watch this DVD before giving birth - it would save all the agony both physical and emotional. Cant recommend highly enough.

This video is brilliant. The first part is an antenatal class during which Clare Byam Cook gives lots of advice. The most useful part (and the reason I give it five stars) , however, is the second during which she details three case studies. Seeing her advice put into practise is so helpful, and the pictures of contented mums and babies are so inspirational.
I had cracked nipples and mastisis with feeding my first baby. I bought this video whilst pregnant with my second and watched it several times before she came. I used Clare's guidlines for positioning thi stime and have had no feeding problems at all. I can't recommend this highly enough.

I actually bought this DVD before baby arrived (my first) as I missed a special breastfeeding class that was available on the NHS.
To be honest I was very determined to breastfeed my baby and thought that it would be the most natural experience ever and everything would just flow. What an awakening I had once baby was born! I was in incredible pain, baby wouldn't latch properly, I was suffering from PND and the whole experience was horrific. When baby is feeding every 2 hours, there is literally no respite. After receiving various conflicting advice from midwives/health visitors I watched this DVD and followed what Clare advised and baby and I got though the whole experience and we are still breastfeeding 1.5 years later! (even though swore during this period I would only do it for 4 months). The most VALUABLE piece of advice (along with lots more) was expressing and giving baby a bottle at 3 weeks. I was told by Midwives not to do this when I was experiencing latching problems as baby would have 'nipple confusion'...what a load of codswallop (and Clare states the same in the DVD) I used to hear all the time at my mums group from the ones that didn't offer bottles at the start; they were having major problems with baby 6 months down the line when they were due to go back to work and baby would literally scream when a bottle was within arms distance of them. Not only did expressing relieve my very sore nipples it also gave daddy a chance to feed thus leaving me rest a little!
If you are having problems with breastfeeding please buy this DVD and don't give up. Would love to meet Clare and thank her for her words of wisdom and comfort during a really difficult time :)

If you are in pain breastfeeding, leave any doubts aside about what possible help this could be and don't put off getting this DVD. I struggled for two months in awful pain having never heard of Byam Cook. My baby wouldn't take a bottle and wanted to be fed all the time. I had absolutely no respite. Very difficult to bond when you are in agony. After watching this DVD I tweaked what I was doing accordingly, my nipples healed and it hurt no more. She is brilliant and all midwives / health care visitors / breast feeding counsellors should watch this DVD and pass on her advice.

I have seen this dvd a number of times over the last few years. It is so informative and helpful in demonstrating how to breastfeed, position baby correctly, and addresses problems such as sore nipples, mastitis etc. As an experienced Midwife, Clare is exactly the right person to produce this dvd. As a Maternity Nurse, I recommend this dvd to expectant mums as it gives good information on how to approach breastfeeding so that when baby is born, Mum knows something of what to expect.

In short I had a nightmare with my first son, I was unable to breastfeed and had mastitis and every other breastfeeding issue going and ended up expressing for 2.5 months until my milk ran out. The 'fashion' 2 years ago among midwives was to deny the baby any bottles or liquid until breastfeeding was established - I stupidly listened to this advice until a trip to A&E with a dangerously dehydrated jaundiced baby at 5 days old. This time someone recommended Clare so I bought the DVD. From first skin to skin contact I was able to latch and feed my second baby, it felt amazing, he fed well until the third day at home I was in agony, nipple blisters, cracks, stabbing shooting burning pain etc. So I contacted Clare and saw her personally (she is lovely, but no nosense and direct and very clear!). What was I doing wrong that I didn't get from the DVD...? I had the latch pretty well BUT I thought I had the baby close to me - I was actually leaning over him so much to check if he was on correctly I had both the pillow and him about 4 inches away - Clare moved both closer and had me resting on the pillow up against my ribs and the baby's lower shoulder touching the underside of my breast to roll him on to me - the pain was less instantly - if you watch the DVD it's all quite clear on there it's just very hard to see your own position until someone points out what you are doing wrong. In short I would not be able to feed my baby without this woman's help - the DVD was an excellent starting point. If you're lucky enough not to (like me) have what one Dr described as breasts that are perfectly designed with mastitis in mind, then you might not 'get' how much of a difference this lady can make, breastfeeding day 11 of my newborn and it's getting more comfortable and enjoyable all the time.Read more ›
