World BreastFeeding Week - The Start of Our Journey

Thanks for hopping over from Make Me Happier and welcome to our post for the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt Day 1 The Start of My Journey sponsors today include  Boobie Milk with a £50 voucher, Cherub Chews who are offering a breastfeeding necklace and Loveyush who are offering a breastfeeding scarf for our Grand Prize winner. Over £700 worth of goodies are up for grabs entries via the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post.

A little bit of a different post from the start of a breastfeeding journey.  Instead we want to share the start of our #PositiveAboutBF journey.  A journey to try and campaign and promote positivity surrounding breastfeeding.

It came about by speaking with Karen and helping on the administrative side of Keep Britain Breastfeeding.  That realising that there were a group of us who all want to promote and share a positive message. 

That we understood that breastfeeding is hard work and can be painful.  That breastfeeding is a choice we take every day.

That breastfeeding is something to be celebrated and that is important to tell mothers that "yes, you are doing a good job".

That we understand that not everyone can breastfeed, that not everyone wants to, but that those who choose to should be given the chance to shout about it from the rooftops.

That breastfeeding is a natural and loving thing to give our children.

That it is an achievement.

That it is about respect.

That it is about spreading the RIGHT viral message, a positive and supportive viral message.

That it is about being #PositiveAboutBF.

  1. And what a great message it is. Well done guys for all your hard work organising this alongside everything else you do. :)

  2. A very great message and it's so wonderful to read all of the breastfeeding posts that bloggers have been writing, spreading the word about what breastfeeding is like =)

  3. I don't dress to impress. I dress to be warm and comfortable.

  4. I love dresses, as they are so comfy and elegant. but I think it will be harder to breastfeed when I have my babies end of the year. Pregnant with twins and cant wait to meet them and breastfeed them. xx

  5. Thank you for starting the Positive About Breastfeeding journey!
