It’s World Breastfeeding Week, and we have an exciting competition for all new parents and breastfeeding mums
Did you know this week is World Breastfeeding Week? It’s a global event where individuals and organisations around the world come together to help promote, protect and support breastfeeding parents and families.
This year’s slogan is ‘Empower parents, enable breastfeeding’ which was chosen to be inclusive of all types of parents in today’s world. Supporting all parents to be empowered is vital to help mothers realise their breastfeeding goals.
If you are pregnant or just starting out on your feeding journey, read our midwife’s advice on the benefits of breastfeeding for both babies and mums as well as our post on five facts about breastfeeding that might surprise you.
To mark the week, we have an exciting new competition which includes three months’ supply of Pregnacare Breast-feeding and a Widgey breastfeeding support pillow, to be won by one TalkMum reader.
Why should I take Pregnacare Breast-feeding?
A healthy, varied diet is vital for new mothers, to help produce nutritious breast milk and maintain their own health during the demanding postnatal period. Pregnacare Breast-feeding contains essential vitamins, and minerals including Vitamin D and iron, as well as Omega 3, which provides DHA. Maternal intake of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants*.
For mothers who avoid dairy products, Pregnacare Breastfeeding also contains calcium which is needed for the maintenance of normal bones, particularly during this demanding time. If you’ve taken Pregnacare in pregnancy then Pregnacare Breast-feeding is an ideal follow-on once your baby has arrived.
* A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for adults.
