World Breastfeeding Week: our top breastfeeding posts to support mums
There’s nothing more natural than a mother breastfeeding her baby, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.
This week is World Breastfeeding Week, and the theme is “support breastfeeding for a healthier planet”.
While breastfeeding is planet-friendly, the key is making sure women are supported through their breastfeeding journey, so they can feel empowered to overcome some of the challenges that might come with breastfeeding.
Here are some of our top resources and blog posts to help support mums and mums-to-be.
