Breastfeeding ... with ABA


Introducing ‘Breastfeeding … with ABA’, a new podcast brought to you by volunteers from the Australian Breastfeeding Association. ‘Breastfeeding … with ABA’ is a podcast about breastfeeding - made by parents, for parents.

When you’re a new mum or dad, you need information that’s easy to access and easy to understand. You need to know it’s from a source you can trust. Most of all you need support and understanding from people who know what you’re going through the changes a new baby brings.

ABA was started in 1964 by a group of mums in a suburban loungeroom who wanted to breastfeed their babies and support each other. Fast forward to today and ABA is still supporting families to breastfeed their babies.

The beauty of this pod is that it is by parents and for parents, but has the added benefit of being backed by 56 years of wisdom and, thanks to ABA’s Breastfeeding Information and Research team, is supported with up-to-date information that you can trust.

On ‘Breastfeeding … with ABA’, you will hear parents who’ve been through it all talk about the early days after your baby is born — waiting for your milk to come in; dealing with or hopefully avoiding cracked nipples; breastfed babies and poo; managing our milk supply; sleep; crying and fussy babies; and most importantly, finding your village. We know that every challenge can be faced when you have your village around you. We know because we’ve faced them too.

The pod episodes will be short enough to listen to during a breastfeeding session and you can dip back and re-listen any time you need.

This podcast is supported by our companion blog:
And peer support Facebook group:
