Laois Local Community & Development Committee (LCDC), supported by Healthy Ireland Laois County Council, launched ‘We’re Breastfeeding Friendly Laois’ – a campaign that aims to help improve the health and wellbeing of breastfeeding mothers, babies and their families by encouraging businesses, organisations and community groups to become ‘Breastfeeding Friendly’. In seeking to meet those aims, the campaign will:
- Support business, community and public service settings to welcome breastfeeding mothers and families
- Support breastfeeding mothers and families to be active in the community
- Support parents during the key life transition of becoming a parent
- Support a strong culture of connectedness, between agencies, communities & mother, family, baby, & community
The leadership shown through ‘We’re Breastfeeding Friendly Laois’ initiative in promoting and normalising breastfeeding, has the potential to make the experience around breastfeeding better for babies, mothers and those using public spaces”.
