    Breastfeeding Out & About in Lancashire

    What does it mean to be breastfeeding friendly?

    Breastfeeding Friendly Logo

    The way we feed our babies makes a big difference, and we know that this impacts on babies wellbeing from birth and lasts a whole lifetime, and we would like your support with this.

    A mum should never be made to feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding her baby , in fact the Equality Act 2010 has made it illegal for anyone to ask her to stop feeding your baby or leave a public place, it is a child’s right to be fed where ever they are hungry. Ok so we know that a mum can feed her baby where ever she likes, however to further support this across Lancashire public venues have been signing up to Breastfeeding Friendly Scheme to show their support for breastfeeding out and about.
