Bosom Babies Peer Supporters are all local mums who have breastfed at least one baby and have received training from the local Infant Feeding Team on how to support mums in the Blaby/Oadby/Wigston areas.
We work closely with local Health Visitors and the Infant Feeding Team.
We currently have 33 Peer Supporters and have 72 children between us! We therefore have a vast range of feeding experiences with experience of issues from tongue ties, to managing allergies, to longer term feeding and everything in between. Many of the team have both formula fed and breastfed and we are not judgemental about feeding choices and do not tell anyone how to feed their baby.
We trained as Peer Supporters because we believe that 'building the village' of a local network of mums supporting each other is the best way to help local mums succeed in their breastfeeding goals.
If you need urgent breastfeeding support phone 07565 219709 (Voicemail)
or email firstname.lastname@example.org
we will get back to you within 48 hours, usually much sooner.
