What is the NHS advice for breastfeeding mothers?
The NHS guidance for getting your baby to latch onto your breast is as follows:
- Hold your baby close to you with their nose level with the nipple.
- Wait until your baby opens their mouth really wide with their tongue down. You can encourage them to do this by gently stroking their top lip.
- Bring your baby on to your breast.
- Your baby will tilt their head back and come to your breast chin first.
Remember to support your baby’s neck but not hold the back of their head.
They should then be able to take a large mouthful of breast. Your nipple should go towards the roof of their mouth.
It comes after the singer celebrated her only son hitting the four-week mark on Friday with a series of heart-melting snaps.
The TV presenter showcased Blake wrapped in an adorable milk bottle swaddle blanket, as she honoured, ‘4 WHOLE weeks of loving you baby boy’.
She also nicknamed her son her ‘lil burrito’ as she shared an image cradling him and gazing lovingly into his eyes.
In another snap, her newborn rested on a cream carpet in a matching knitted jumper and hat.
Rochelle also shared an image of Blake sporting a ‘Napstar’ grey babygrow and a grey knitted beanie.
The former Saturdays singer proved that Blake has an endless wardrobe full of stylish ensembles, as she captured him in a black onesie with a contrasting red hat and matching Nike high tops.
In another image, her youngest child sported a delightful Peaky Blinders-style flat cap before switching into a khaki Yeezus tour one-piece.
In the last – but certainly not least – Instagram snap, Blake donned another monochromatic outfit as he was seen wearing black trousers, a beige T-shirt and matching knitted hat.

‘For me it’s been remembering all the other stuff like which day I need to get the PE kits ready for and homework etc etc, that I have found a little overwhelming.
‘You’ve just got to give yourself time to find your feet which I suppose is being made easier with all these new rules and staying home (not that I understand the rules lol).
‘If you’re expecting a baby I’m thinking of you, it is a funny time to have one that’s for sure but when your little one arrives they are the only place your head is, they block out the craziness and the world seems magical again.’
