Health & wellbeing Breastfeeding-Friendly Manchester

Become breastfeeding-friendly

We want to ensure that mothers are able to breastfeed comfortably when away from home. We are encouraging organisations and businesses across Manchester to show they welcome parents who wish to breastfeed their children with our Breastfeeding-Friendly Scheme.

Research shows there are three main benefits to being breastfeeding-friendly:

  1. Attracting new customers. Recommendations for breastfeeding-friendly venues can travel quickly amongst new mums.
  2. It helps create a positive image for your business or service.
  3. It does not cost you anything to set up.
