LCGB have downloadable knitting and crochet patterns for breasts and one that looks at normal nappies in the first few days.

Many IBCLCs use dolls or representations of babies and knitted breasts within their work. These visual aids are especially helpful when demonstrating positioning or hand expressing to a mum. They are equally valuable in the classroom, be it in training for midwives, health visitors or peer supporters.
