Breastfeeding – it’s the in thing to talk about.
The 25th World breastfeeding celebrations will be held right at the beginning of August and in England we have just had our national breastfeeding celebration week with a focus around breastfeeding support. To breastfeed successfully mums need support from pregnancy right to the early weeks and months; it’s so valuable to have someone who believes you can breastfeed and that breastfeeding is important. It is not too late to share stories of your breastfeeding friend using #bffriend17. Breastfeeding is something that we do not do enough of in Middlesbrough or Redcar and Cleveland and if your experience could help someone to think about breastfeeding or feel supported to continue breastfeeding then please take part.
