Here is a list of sites which offer great information:
This is the Australian Breastfeeding Association site; formerly known as the Nursing Mothers of Australia. This organisation was started by a very forward thinking and motivated group of mothers in 1965 to assist and support Australian mothers to breastfeed their babies. Breastfeeding rates in 1965 were the lowest in Australian history. This group alone has helped Australia return to rates which the rest of the world is envious of! The Association has since enabled breastfeeding research of world significance to flourish in Australia.
Supported by the Australian government this website has all you ever wanted to know about raising children.
