National breast feeding week celebrations

Breast feeding mums in Vogrie park

 Lots going on to promote the benefits of breast feeding over the last week. 

Parents  had a picnic in Vogrie park in Midlothian which aimed to underline that women shouldn’t feel that they have to be in a darkened corner to feed their child, but should reclaim the streets and parks for breast feeding. A great day for it and they got coverage in the local newspaper The NCT has been busy in East Lothian (see links)  with a range of events over the course of the week and on Monday next week  there is a public launch of the new look breast feeding friendly public premise award. 

Well done to Carolyn and Shauna for all the hard work
