Breastfeeding Friendly Chester is a scheme highlighting businesses in Chester that are particularly welcoming to breastfeeding families. We are run by volunteers and were set up with funding from Chester NCT. Please note: NCT does not officially endorse these businesses and all opinions are those of volunteers.
All members of Breastfeeding Friendly Chester commit that
- We will welcome breastfeeding in any public part of our premises
- We will display the Breastfeeding Friendly Chester logo to show we belong to the scheme
- We will train our staff to make breastfeeding families feel welcome
A list of our members is on our Facebook Info page. The Breastfeeding Friendly Chester directory can be found here or use our Google Map. We’ve included details of family friendly facilities at each location, such as baby change and highchairs, so the scheme is useful to any family with young children.
We are looking to arrange monthly meet ups for coffee and cakes – you can find details on our events page. Its a great way to meet new friends and you don’t have to be breastfeeding to come along. Its our way of showing our members the main benefit of joining the scheme – new customers!
Also check out our events here and on our FaceBook page.
Join us to celebrate breastfeeding week by taking part in our 'big feed' at Chester's fantastic new venue Storyhouse on the 28th June. There will be a raffle with some amazing prizes including tickets to see Alice in Wonderland. Health professionals and Bosom Buddies will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Let's normalise breastfeeding!
Then on the 29th June we are hosting a tea party! Head over to The Hive at the Dale barracks for tea, cake and plenty of fun for all the family.There is a soft play area for toddlers, face painting, arts and crafts and a raffle with great prizes. Plus local classes will be running FREE mini sessions for mums, babies and toddlers. All this and much more!!!
Whether you are a breastfeeding mum or support breastfeeding we'd love to see you at one (or both) of our events
