Mothers urged to breastfeed

BREASTFEEDING mothers of Bundaberg are encouraged to join the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) for support and advice on the challenges of motherhood.

This World Breastfeeding Week, Bundaberg ABA group leader Tami Boas called for women to nurture their children in the most natural and healthy way.

“Breastfeeding is the normal way for babies to feed. You can sustain a baby for the first six months of their lives, fully and with no extra food.

“This is good for both the baby’s and the mother’s health,” she said.

Mother of six-week-old Emily, Jessica Cullinan joined the group when she was six months pregnant.

“I breastfeed because over the course of the day my breast milk adapts to suit my baby’s needs.

“It also develops over the weeks and months to suit my baby’s growth and development. Formula which is based on cow’s milk just doesn’t do this,” she said.

For more information call the ABA hotline on 1800 686 2 686.
