Breastfeeding Friendly Scheme

The aims of the South Lakeland Breastfeeding Friendly scheme are to:

South Lakeland Breastfeeding Friendly Logo

• support mothers to feel confident breastfeeding out and about
• be a way that communities and businesses can show they welcome and support breastfeeding
• raise awareness about the benefit and barriers to breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is good for mums, babies and the environment but many women feel nervous about breastfeeding out and about and this can mean they choose not to breastfeed or that they stop breastfeeding before they want to. Concerns about breastfeeding in public (such as embarrassment and negative public attitudes) have been identified as one of the main barriers to breastfeeding. By signing up to this scheme businesses and organisations can help show that they welcome and support breastfeeding families by displaying an easily recognisable sticker and sharing information with their staff and volunteers about why breastfeeding is important and how it is protected.

It is important to remember that the right to breastfeed in any public place is protected by law and that most women only have positive experiences of breastfeeding out and about.

To join the Breastfeeding Friendly scheme, businesses must sign a declaration agreeing that they (and any staff) will support a breastfeeding mother on their premise.

To join the scheme please email betterhealth@southlakeland.gov.uk or call 01539 733 333.
