Kia ora whanau, this week is World Breastfeeding Week a great time to celebrate and show support for breastfeeding mums and their pepe.

Theres nothing more natural or healthier than breastfeeding. While it helps build a beautiful bond, it also gives baby a great start in life. Its not always easy, and thats why breastfeeding mums need our support, no matter where they are at work, at home or in the community.

Theres a great community of breastfeeding mums and supporters online too – sharing stories, photos, good advice and support.

To show your support, go toour NZ Breastfeeding facebook group and hit the Like button at the top of the page. Plus, enter our World Breastfeeding Week competition to win a fantastic limited edition Tshirt or bodysuit for baby.

Or for more information, including how you can support breastfeeding mums, visit Breastfeeding Support page.

The Ministry of Health has a great DVD too called Breastfeeding naturally. And its free! You can get one from your midwife, or you can watch it all online on YouTube. There are also videos featuring Sonia Gray and the Rokocoko family.

Breastfeeding. Its a natural part of life.
