New Teesdale Baby Cafe will highlight benefits of breastfeeding

NEW mothers and mums-to-be are being invited to celebrate the launch of a Baby Café in Teesdale.

It will be part of a national network of breastfeeding drop-ins, combining breastfeeding information with a relaxed, informal environment where mothers can chat and learn about breastfeeding.

Following its success across County Durham and Darlington, the Teesdale Baby Café will be launched with a party on Wednesday, February 20, at Barnard Castle Sure Start centre, in Galgate.

It is funded by Public Health County Durham and Darlington and will be one of 11 Baby Cafés in the area.

Health visitor Jill Hedley said: “Breastfeeding is the most natural way for us to feed our babies.

“Being part of the Baby Cafe initiative means we will be able to provide an even better level of service and support to breastfeeding mothers than ever before.”

Nationally, Baby Café has more than 100 drop-ins supporting up to 10,000 mums a year.

They are open to all those interested in any aspect of breastfeeding – mothers, partners and supporters – and take place once a week in children’s centres or community venues.

I have a problem with woman breast feeding in public and would like to refer to an incident that happened only last week.

I was enjoying an all day breakfast with a friend of mine in a local café, I was almost onto my second piece of black pudding when in walked this young lady holding a new born babe in her arms
This young lady ordered a cup of tea and a sandwich however as soon as the waitress left to supply her order, the young mother promptly popped out one of her ample bosoms and after some manoeuvring stuck this Childs face to the afo-mentioned breast.
I almost chocked on seeing this and can only say that I was greatly upset, so much so that I felt I had no alternative but to speak out about my feelings on this issue, so, and with some concern for the other males in the café I stood up and suggested loudly to this young lady that there was a number of males in the café and if she was determined to flaunt her breasts in this way she should be more considerate of their presence as we would all be much happier if she would get the kids head out of the way
