Keep Britain Breastfeeding scavenger hunt 2013

The British National Breastfeeding week will be celebrated in 2013 from June 23rd – 29th.

The goal of the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt 2013 is to add a little bit of fun and to raise awareness of breastfeeding.  Many women do not reach their breastfeeding goals, stopping much earlier than they intended to.  During the National Breastfeeding Awareness Week bloggers and companies that support breastfeeding and have something to say about it will be sharing their views, experiences and knowledge with you so that you can make an informed choice about your very own breastfeeding journey and perhaps give you the confidence and information you need to achieve yours and your babies breastfeeding goals.

Each day bloggers will be writing articles and posts around around a different theme.

Sunday June 23rd – The Benefits of Breastfeeding
Monday June 24th – Top Breastfeeding Tips You Should All Know
Tuesday June 25th – The Importance of Breastfeeding Support
Wednesday June 26th – Positive Nursing In Public Experiences & Funny Breastfeeding Memories
Thursday June 27th – Breastmilk Pumping
Friday June 28th – Breastfeeding Beyond a Year
Saturday June 29th – Dispelling Breastfeeding Myths

You will hear from a large collection of Mums and family members as well as companies sharing their experiences around these seven themes, and we ask that you take a few minutes each day to read the articles and share them with your friends so that you can learn something new, share a top tip by commenting on the articles and be entered to win the amazing Grand Prize!
