Breastfeeding is an amazing achievement. Not just for babies who benefit from the nutrients contained in real baby milk, but also for their mums, partners and families.
The Be a Star campaign is dedicated to increasing the number of young mums who choose to breastfeed. We hope to do this by showcasing the beauty, confidence and pride that comes with breastfeeding, as well as providing breastfeeding information and support and highlighting the unique health benefits that it brings to both baby and mum.
We have created this blog to provide breastfeeding advice and information and to make it as easy as possible for you to get involved in our growing community of breastfeeding mums - to take part in topical discussions, share tips and support other mums with your advice and experience.
If there are any topics you would like to see covered on the blog, or if you require information that you can’t find here, please click here to email us your thoughts/ suggestions.
You can also access information in the main section of the blog and locate your nearest childrenâ€™s centre local support section.
If you would like to be kept up-to-date as new information appears on this site, please subscribe to our RSS feed by clicking the icon above or following this link
We are keen to hear from you, not just your experiences of breastfeeding (click here to post your experience), but your comments on the campaign and blog, so please do log in and get posting.
If you know any other mums or expectant mums who need breastfeeding advice and support, forward on our details and let’s work together to help more mums choose to breastfeed. Equally, if you know any mum whose family or partner are struggling with the idea of them breastfeeding, ask them to log on for breastfeeding advice and support that is relevant to them.
