Finding breastfeeding support
There are many sources of support for breastfeeding.
Several organisations train breastfeeding counsellors that can offer face to face support and run breastfeeding helplines such as
Breastfeeding Line - 0300 330 0771
The NCT breastfeeding Line is open 8am–10pm, seven days a week.
Call our Breastfeeding Line to talk to a qualified breastfeeding counsellor for information and support to help you breastfeed successfully.
BfN Supporterline: 0300 100 0210
Supporterline is run by BfN Registered Breastfeeding Supporters. Supporters are mums, who have breastfed their own babies and who have received intensive training in breastfeeding. They work on a voluntary basis and are based in their own homes.
BfN Supporterline in Bengali / Sylheti: 0300 456 2421
Available for Bengali and Sylheti speakers.

The National Breastfeeding Helpline is a helpline run in collaboration with the Breastfeeding Network (BfN) and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM). The project is funded by the Department of Health, through the Section 64 grant scheme. Calls are diverted to the nearest ABM or BfN volunteer, meaning the 'National' helpline also has a very 'local' feel to it.
The LLL Leaders who take the calls are mothers like you, answering the phone in their own home. They will listen to your questions and offer practical suggestions and warm support. They have the most up-to-date breastfeeding information available and can pass on the wealth of experience of other breastfeeding mothers, to help you solve the problems and make the decisions that are right for you and your baby.
