Breastfeeding Awareness Week (Monday 9 – Friday 13 June)

Breastfeeding Awareness Week (Friday 13 June - Thursday 26 June)

To celebrate breastfeeding awareness week Fri 20 Jun - Thurs 26 Jun 2014 and to encourage more mums to breastfeed we are hosting a series of events across Wirral with everything from a Breastfeeding Roadshow to a Teddy Bear's Picnic.


Claire Whitehead, Infant Feeding team lead said: 'These events are a fantastic opportunity to encourage and support more local mums to breastfeed their little ones. Our team is proud to offer breastfeeding support to mums and partners across Wirral.'


The 'Big Feed' is taking place in a number of venues across Wirral to encourage local mums to come and breastfeed. There'll also be a range of activities for mums and babies to get involved in, as well as information and advice.


There will also be a 'Teddy Bear's Picnic in Birkenhead Park, where all the family can bring along their teddies and picnic treats.


The celebrations will culminate in a Breastfeeding Roadshow at Marine Point, New Brighton. There'll be games, food, and support for expectant and new mums, as well as arts and craft activities. There'll also be a flash mob, a dance routine that everyone at the event can get involved in to celebrate breastfeeding awareness week. Look out for it on YouTube!
