June is Breastfeeding Awareness Month in Wigan and we’ve got lots going on for breastfeeding mums and mums-to-be around the borough. Check out our programme of events below and come and join us at one:
When I was pregnant with my first and second child in 2009/10 I remember being asked if I was going to breast or bottle feed and when answering that I was unsure was given a breastfeeding DVD and it not being mentioned again, I really didn’t know at that time about the benefits of breastfeeding – only saw the restrictions I thought it would have on my lifestyle. As neither my mum nor my grandma had breastfed it wasn’t something which was discussed or encouraged by my family. I then made the decision to bottle feed my first two children.
