National Breastfeeding Week
This week is National Breastfeeding Week and we have been planning our Teddy Bears Picnic for weeks now to celebrate. All breastfeeding mums in the area are invited to the event. The event is held in our local park, we are having a teddy bear hunt, parachute games, bubble machines, soft play, singing and music making etc. Last year it was a really hot day and some of the mums brought little sun tents. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the rain stays away on Thursday morning and does not ruin our day.
The NCT have kindly given us some money off vouchers for a local coffee shop that we can hand out. Normally we have lots of breastfeeding promotion items to give out but with all the cut backs we have none this year. The event is also a great place for pregnant mums to come along and chat to people about breastfeeding and answer any questions they may have.
Is anyone doing anything exciting in their area for Breastfeeding week, I would love to hear about them as any ideas for next year would be much appreciated.
