National Breastfeeding Awareness Week


This week is National Breastfeeding Awareness week (10-16 May). New growth charts for children aged 0-4 yrs will be introduced this week by the World Health Organisation and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health are developing materials to assist healthcare professionals in using the new charts. The charts are based on measurements of approximately 8,500 breastfed children worldwide. The theme of this year’s awareness week is that every day makes a difference to your baby and that with help and support from healthcare professionals, friends and family, mums are likely to breastfeed for longer, giving their child vital health benefits.
