These tools use several common signs to assess whether a baby is breastfeeding well and safely, for mothers to fill in with their midwife or health visitor. There is also a breastfeeding checklist for mothers.
See our page on antenatal and postnatal conversations, for further guidance on having compassionate and effective conversations with mothers.
