Breastfeeding is practical, free, can be discreet and is an amazing achievement to be proud of.

  • Breastfeeding gives baby the best start in life – breastfed babies have a lower chance of developing eczema, getting ear, chest and tummy bugs, being obese and developing diabetes when they are older.

  • Mums who breastfeed have a lower risk of breast and ovarian cancer.  Breastfeeding also uses about 500 calories a day so many women who breastfeed say they find it easier to get back to their pre-pregnancy figure.
