|New mums wanting to breastfeed their baby often require help to latch the baby on when starting out, according to one baby feeding expert.
The Department of Health advocates that breastfeeding is the best form of early nutrition for infants, but many mothers give up trying because of difficulty or discomfort.
Nurse and midwife, Clare Byam-Cook explained: "The main reason women struggle to latch the baby on or get sore nipples is because breasts come in all shapes and sizes. It's just a logistical problem, the bigger the breast, the harder it is to put in a small mouth."
