Breastfeeding challenge

Overview

With the breastfeeding rates in Lancashire being considerably lower than the national average, we have worked with representatives from the county’s Infant Feeding Partnership to launch a county wide breastfeeding continuation campaign.

In an effort to normalise breastfeeding up to 6 weeks, the Six Week Breastfeeding Challenge Campaign will encourage mums who have already chosen to breastfeed to challenge themselves to continue for at least the first 6 weeks.

We know that the majority of women have a general understanding of the benefits of breastfeeding however many lack exposure to information or practical help on how they can overcome some of the obstacles they may experience in those early days of breastfeeding.

That's why we are hoping to encourage mums to download our FREE web app, which is simple and easy to use, so that mums can get the support they may need and log feeds on the go.

You can access the web app here: www.breastfeedingchallenge.co.uk
