Why the First 6 Weeks?

Who knew that something as natural as breastfeeding doesn’t always happen…well… naturally? First 6 Weeks answers questions and helps you find support when you are learning to breastfeed.

While there is no set time limit on how long it takes to learn to breastfeed, it seems to take about six weeks for it to feel more natural and comfortable. It is also during the first six weeks that many common challenges arise. Knowing that it will get better, and that there will be a point at which breastfeeding will happen naturally, is a big source of comfort to many women.

This site is here to support you in your first six weeks and beyond – because we know everyone will have different experiences while breastfeeding. It’s about providing you with information and the support you need to continue.
Breastfeeding. Learning makes it natural.
