National Breastfeeding Awareness Week 2008 at Great Yarmouth

 In a week when it emerged that one in four top restaurants would ask a mother to leave if she started breastfeeding, Baby Café mums set off around Great Yarmouth, campaigning for cafes, restaurants and relevant shops to display stickers letting mums know they are welcome to breastfeed. Balloons were handed out to children along the way.
They particularly asked that mums be welcomed to sit in the main eating areas not tucked away in a room or perched on the edge of a toilet seat! The response was phenomenally positive with more than 25 premises in the town displaying the specially made cartoon stickers and being entered on a list which will be made available to mums on discharge from hospital. The Great Yarmouth Mercury ran an article as did Radio Broadland and Beach Radio.

 

 

Here we are campaigning for breastfeeding friendly restaurants and cafés in Great Yarmouth during the week.
