Booby Trap Bingo is a unique game that combines boobs, babies and bingo to create a forum for women to share their breastfeeding stories. Hosted by comedian Nelly Thomas and Pinky McKay IBCLC, this little film reveals the most common 'Booby Traps' that can have a major impact on breastfeeding. As one trap leads to another, we see how easy it is to get five in a row to call BINGO!
We acknowledge our friends at the Best for Babes Foundation as the originators of the term ‘Booby Trap’.
       
There are many wonderful organisations and individuals offering assistance and helping to support breastfeeding (and bottle feeding for those mums who exclusively pump or combination feed!). Here we’ve curated the best of the best for your easy reference. Please let us know if you’ve come across something which you feel deserves to be showcased.
