Mums share tea and advice in Britain’s biggest Breastfeeding Café initiative

 3802

Let’s have a big whoop for new mamas who are today either hosting or simply joining in, girly chats up and down the country as part of Medela’s 2016 Breastfeeding Café initiative. 

The idea of encouraging breastfeeding mums to get together for a natter over a hot cuppa was inspired by Medela’s survey results, which last year revealed that 76 per cent of mums believe that talking to other mums at support groups not only helped to reassure them but also supported them on their breastfeeding journey. 

Commenting on today’s event Medela Lactation Consultant, Sioned Hilton says: ‘There’s no doubt that breastfeeding is the best way to feed but it can be challenging at times. Having a good, reassuring and supportive network around you is vital. We know there are common difficulties such as getting the right latch, positioning, managing engorgement etc… Speaking to other breastfeeding mums who’ve experienced and managed these challenges first hand can be extremely helpful and is a fantastic way to get advice and learn new tips.’

Good idea, more of this please ladies.
