For anyone looking for any type of information and support on breastfeeding, there are various excellent online resources:

Kellymom   http://www.kellymom.com/index.html

Up to date evidence based research on all breastfeeding matters.  Search engine can be prickly, but in the main, the first stop for help and advice.  USA based.

The Birth Den  http://www.thebirthden.com/Newman.html

Collected articles and videos, mostly from Dr Jack Newman, who also contributes to Kellymom. 

La Leche League http://www.llli.org/

Has a vast resource pool of articles, particularly good for the more uncommon issues.  Also has country specific free to attend support meetings, with access to an book library at such meetings.  Quite a good search engine, but can take some thought in terms of types of answers laid out - articles versus personal experience etc  Main site also has question and answer forums.  Phoneline support in many countries - check main website for country specific details.

The Breastfeeding Network   http://www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/

UK based information and support resource.  Has excellent handouts to print on UK breastfeeeding safe prescriptions.  Also has a 24 hour information helpline.  0300 100 0210

Australian Breastfeeding Association  http://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/

Excellent online information.  Good search engine.  Also has question and answer forums, and phoneline.  1800 686 2 686

BreastfeedingBabies  http://www.youtube.com/user/BreastfeedingBabies

Youtube site that contains excellent latch videos etc.  Mostly Jack Newman's stuff, but some others interesting breastfeeding videos.  Every clip has extensive 'further help' and links to resources in the 'more info' box.

I'm sure others will add stuff!
