The Baby-Friendly Council of NL in partnership with many community volunteers across the province have created a toolkit of resources for local businesses and community organizations.
This kit contains a window sticker “WELCOME! You can breastfeed here”, as well as other material that can help businesses become more breastfeeding friendly.
Over 100 women provided feedback to the Baby-Friendly NL Facebook page identifying ‘breastfeeding friendly public spaces’ as being an important factor in supporting their breastfeeding experiences.
Let’s work together to help support breastfeeding moms and families across Newfoundland and Labrador!
Check out the following YouTube video about the “Making Breastfeeding Your Business” campaign:
