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.
  • All for one

    I pledge to support mums and dads out there who need a friend when being in a public place. If you have to feed and you seem uncomfortable or scared, don’t worry because chances are me and my Bub will already be feeding. Let’s break this mold together, everyone gets hungry!

  • Normalise breastfeeding

I pledge to support other breastfeeding mums and help them whenever I can. I will clear up any misconceptions when I hear them by telling people the facts about breastfeeding.

  • Breastfeeding to Infinity or Beyond infancy

    I pledge to offer support to all mothers as best I can. I believe breastfeeding was the right choice for me and for my children. They have benefited from being breastfeed.I also know some mothers who wanted to nurse their baby(ies) have not been successful for a multitude of reasons – been judged and lack of support among them.
    In the second year (12-23 months), 448 mL of breastmilk provides:
    29% of energy requirements
    43% of protein requirements
    36% of calcium requirements
    75% of vitamin A requirements
    76% of folate requirements
    94% of vitamin B12 requirements
    60% of vitamin C requirements — Dewey 2001 “

  • Breastfeeding is a normal act of nature!

    I find it very strange to think about “normalising breastfeeding ” it feels like I want to normalise giving food/comfort to a baby/child. Some do it in the form of a bottle, some do it in the form of a packet/pouch, band aids etc I use my BOOBS!!!

  • Exposure is key

    I pledge to feed in public uncovered whenever my baby/toddler needs it. I pledge to help get rid of #lactaboobiephobia by exposing others to what really happens when a baby/toddler is fed in public. The child is more settled and people don’t see as much as they think they will. I pledge to help women everywhere feel more comfortable about nourishing their children.
