Who is your BFF?

National Breastfeeding Week 2017

The Trust is supporting National Breastfeeding Awareness Week with accessible, expert advice and support.

The Infant Feeding Team at the Trust have been available in the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital offering friendly advice, information and support to new mums and mums-to-be.

The theme for this year is: ‘Be a friend or find a friend to support whilst breastfeeding’. This could be a mother who identifies a friend who has supported her or believed in her to breastfeed – her BFF (breastfeeding friend)! Likewise, it may also be a breastfeeding supporter, health professional, family member or friend who can identify a mother they have supported.

Get involved by taking a selfie with a breastfeeding friend and post and a short comment with #BFF2017 on either Twitter (@RotherhamNHS_FT) or Facebook (The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust).

For further information about feeding your baby, read the ‘Off to the best start’ book by Start 4 Life or contact 01709 42 33 33. You could also join us at our upcoming events:
