By making a public pledge you can show mothers that community support for breastfeeding far outweighs the minority that take offence. We encourage you to explore the pledges on this site and think about something you can do (as an individual, employer, business,service provider, venue operator) to help make it easier for mums who choose breastfeed to do so.

  • Breastfeeding is beautiful

    I finished breastfeeding my babies last year, my little ones were 5 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old. I am so lucky to have found support with the Australian Breastfeeding Association, which normalised the experience for me. I have made some wonderful friends, that I am sure will be my support through parenting and well after.

    I am now a breastfeeding counsellor and I pledge to continue to share this wonderful support to all the mums I encounter. I will always discuss breastfeeding and the support mums require with community leaders and health professionals, encouraging them to be a little more informed, and know how to find support for the mums that they encounter.

    I will always sneak a smile of encouragement and support to mums who I notice breastfeeding in public, because they are the ones doing the ground work for the mums of the future, and besides breastfeeding is beautiful in every way.

  • Breastfeeding is the biological norm

    I pledge to always support Breastfeeding Mothers and babies. Breastfeeding is the biological norm and is an integral part of healthy child development. I pledge to encourage breastfeeding Mum’s and let them know that they are doing a great job in Mothering their child through Breastfeeding. I pledge to share how valuable the Australian Breastfeeding Association’s ‘Breastfeeding Education Class’ was to me, and was the key to my amazing Breastfeeding journey. I pledge to share how the Australian Breastfeeding Association’s 24 hour Breastfeeding Helpline (1800 mum 2 mum) was so supportive and helpful to me throughout different Breastfeeding challenges that I experienced, and subsequently conquered, due to their support and also the relevant information in the ABA published book ‘Breastfeeding…naturally’ (which is free with ABA membership). I pledge to remain an ongoing member of the Australian Breastfeeding Association to support their mission in supporting, educating and advocating for a breastfeeding inclusive society.

  • Don’t be afraid to feed your baby!

    Having just had my 2nd baby 2 days ago, breastfeeding in public is not a new or daunting task for me. I still feed my 20 month old daughter & now that she is joined by her little brother, I will relish the closeness & joy that tandem feeding is giving us. Power to all mums out there for doing the best by your little 1’s & don’t let anyone try to shame you!

  • Fed up with sensitivity

    I have been breastfeeding my son for 16 months now and hated when he was younger that I felt like I had to hide from weary eyes who didn’t approve of my feeding choice and feel it should be normalized. If Victorias Secret can advertise like they can, then women should be able to breastfed in public like nature intended.

  • Baby gets what baby wants!

    I am the oldest of three girls. My son is almost two months old and so far no one has said anything to my face about breastfeeding but I have received looks and inadvertent ridicule. This is so natural that it hurts me emotionally to be ridiculed. My cousin and I are a support group and I love it! I have taken pictures every public place I nurse and plan to make a collage so every woman who comes to my home forever will feel empowered!

  • My pledge

    I’ve been breastfeeding for 8 months and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I feed my daughter anytime and anywhere I please. I exercise my right to feed her in public and pump at work. We shouldn’t have to normalize breastfeeding, but I plan to help and encourage others mothers anyway I can.

  • We are all in this together! One boob at a time.

    I pledge to be a physical example of normalizing breastfeeding. I will nurse my children whenever and wherever because that is what is right. I will also let other mothers know that I am proud and happy to see them do the same.
