National Breastfeeding Week 2016

National Breastfeeding Celebration Week is an opportunity for mothers, breastfeeding supporters and health professionals to come together and share what works well to support breastfeeding in local communities.

This year National Breastfeeding Celebration Week is concentrating on how ‘everyone in local communities can support mothers to breastfeed, whenever and wherever they are’.

Share your breastfeeding support stories on social media #celebratebreastfeeding

As part of these celebrations, the local Milk! East Preston Breastfeeding Drop-In joined in with the Annual East Preston Carnival to raise awareness of the local group and breastfeeding within the community.

The theme of the Carnival was Children’s books, so the mums, children and breastfeeding peer supporters dressed up as ‘Aliens love Underpants’ not forgetting to wear their pink MILK! Tshirts.

The mums and children handed out stickers and flyers to an enthusiastic crowd,and came second place in the ‘Youth walking competition’!
