Launching the initiative Minister Frank Feighan T.D. said that he welcomed ‘this important initiative and the many supports that are provided throughout County Laois to promote breastfeeding, and enhance the health and wellbeing of our children. We are working to promote, support and protect breastfeeding in Ireland. It is important that our environments support breastfeeding also.’
