Early childhood services can be places that support breastfeeding, and the attitude of staff and teachers and what they do makes a big difference as to whether a mother continues with breastfeeding. Often there is not time enough time to discuss questions such as whether there is a risk of babies being given the wrong bottle, whether it is okay for mums to breastfeed older children, or what to do if another parent protests about a mum breastfeeding or expressing milk at the centre.
This article contains:
- a checklist of indicators to use when assessing if a service is breastfeeding friendly,
- some practical strategies for both families and teachers and caregivers,
- a link to a video about breastfeeding in an early childhood centre context in NZ, and
- an overview of research and what science has to say about the value of breastfeeding.
