Breastfeeding celebrated in Liverpool

A series of activities to celebrate breastfeeding are taking place in Liverpool, until 26 June 2016, as part of 'National Breastfeeding Celebration Week.'

The events are organised by Liverpool Community Bambis, who offer breastfeeding support to mums include:-

Wednesday, 22 June 2016 - a teddy bears picnic is being held at Walton Children's Centre, from 1:30pm to 3pm. Call:- 0151 233 6620, to book a place.

Thursday, 23 June 2016 - a vintage afternoon tea party is happening at Tuebrook Children's Centre, from 12:30pm to 2pm. Call:- 0151 233 3830, to book a place.

Friday, 24 June 2016 - Liverpool Community Bambis will be in the foyer at Liverpool Women's Hospital during the day offering advice and support.

Although breastfeeding is on the increase in Liverpool, the City still lags behind the national average with only around ½ of new mums feeding naturally compared to almost ¾ across the Ccountry, and this drops to 35 percent at 6 to 8 weeks compared to 44% across the rest of the Country.

Cabinet member for children's services, Councillor Barry Kushner, said:- "Experts are united in the view that breast feeding even for a short period of time gives children the very best start in life. We recognise that it can be difficult for new mums, which is why the work of Liverpool Community Bambis in offering support and advice is absolutely invaluable.  These events are a fun way of spreading the word about the benefits of breastfeeding and informing women about the advantages for the health of both baby and mother. We want mums to know that there is lots of health and support out there for them if they need it."

Sandra Davies, Liverpool's Director of Public Health said:- "Breastmilk really does give babies the best start, as it is all that's needed for the 1st 6 months of life. It protects babies from infections and diseases and has many benefits for both children and mothers."

A Breastfeeding Welcome scheme, with more than 200 places that will accommodate and welcome families in Liverpool, has been established. A list of venues, and more information about the importance of breast feeding, is available online.  Mums are being urged to support the week of events by sharing pictures and thoughts on social media such as Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #celebratingbreastfeeding. Liverpool Community Bambis can be found on Facebook and are on Twitter @bambisliverpool. During Breast Feeding Awareness week the Bambis team at Liverpool Women's Hospital will be sharing interesting facts and information on social media at:-
