Laois LCDC, supported by Healthy Ireland, are launching ‘We’re Breastfeeding Friendly Laois’ – campaign, this Friday , 1st October. This initiative 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 and mother, family, baby, and community.
The initiative is very simple and cost-free for a business, group or organisation to sign up to.
