Buddies spread the word at Rotherham Show!Published Tuesday, 30th September 2014
Mums and mums-to-be flocked to the One Town, One Community tent at Rotherham show, where the Rotherham Breast Buddies stall gave out information on breastfeeding and local groups.
As well as finding out more about the benefits of breast feeding and the support groups available for mums in Rotherham, families were also able to enter into a free prize draw.
"We had a fab two days promoting breastfeeding and the Rotherham Breast Buddies scheme," said Peer Supporter Nicola Whelan.
"We spoke to lots of families with babies and expecting mummies about the benefits of breastfeeding and the groups we run in children centres across Rotherham
"It was very positive and a great way to meet new families and inform them what is on offer in Rotherham regarding feeding your baby or toddler," she added.
Mums who visited the stall in the One Town, One Community tent took the opportunity to feed their little ones as well as reading the information on offer. The free prize draw included gifts donated by local "Breastfeeding Friendly" businesses and a signed shirt kindly donated by Rotherham United.
The results of the prize draw, as well as further information about Breast Buddies, can be viewed on the Breast Buddies Facebook page.
