Help the Breastfeeding Manifesto Coalition

Breastfeeding symbol


Just got an appeal from the NCT to fill a survey before Friday, 6 November. 

I will do the survey and I invite you reader to do it, too!

Here's some info:
'The Breastfeeding Manifesto Coalition, of which the NCT is a member, is developing a national scheme to support mothers to exercise their right to breastfeed when out and about. We are talking to the Department of Health about the scheme and they may support its roll-out which would help towards the delivery of Objective 5 of the Breastfeeding Manifesto: Develop policy and practice to support breastfeeding in public places. Please click to fill in a quick and easy survey. The scheme will be simple and effective and will be delivered using a number of engaging resources and signage in a whole range of venues. 

The most powerful resource of the scheme is YOU and people just like you across the country - together we'll make sure that many 1,000s of venues sign up to the scheme. The scheme will be in keeping with the Breastfeeding Manifesto's commitment to the World Health Organisation Code of Marketing of breast milk substitutes and subsequent resolutions.

Please spare five minutes to give us your views and forward this survey on to all your friends, family and colleagues who might like to get involved.'
