The theme for this year’s National Breastfeeding Week was ‘Everyone has a part to play in supporting breastfeeding’ and this celebration day is about exactly that — promoting positivity, awareness and education for all around breastfeeding.

Where? Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3JL

What time? 10:30am – 2:00pm

What to Expect on the Day:

  • Signposting to local support and charities
  • Baby massage sessions
  • Baby-wearing dance class
  • Sensory corner
  • Soft play area for toddlers
  • Arts and crafts

Claire Bisaro, from the Infant Feeding Team, said “We want to celebrate all things breastfeeding and we hope this will be an opportunity for parents to see all the different places, organisations and people they can get support from with their breastfeeding journey – from the hospital and community infant feeding teams to breastfeeding charities and other community networks in the area.”

So come along parents, little ones and all for a day of positive celebration and knowledge-sharing in support of breastfeeding!
