Want to breastfeed but need some help? Mumsnet's Breastfeeding pages are crammed with honest advice.
Not actually how to feed! But these are learning outcomes for upper primary/lower secondary pupils:"I can explain the benefits of breastfeeding on health and wellbeing"."I understand the short and long-term benefits of breastfeeding, such as the nutritional impact and the maternal bond, and I am aware of issues associated with breastfeeding".Truthfully - not exactly sure how this will be implemented (new curriculum) - but surely a good step?!
i wonder what they will actually teach too. sounds v good in outcome terms.
It is a good step, Caz....would be good if it was elsewhere in the UK, too.
It is admirable, but there is still little support for bf-ing women in many areas so it doesn't really address the problem.
It's a start, anything which helps make breastfeeding first choice is a good thing.
I am now 37 and I remember doing something similar in Year 2/3 seniors, So Year 8? As part of one of the humanities subjects.I will say it stayed with me as I always intended to breastfeed even before I decided I would have kids.
For those who have never seen someone breastfeed (we all know bottle feeding is seen as the norm in a lot of areas, mine included) if it even makes some of them think about giving it a go when they have their own family it is a good thing.
a great idea - also have legislation on bf in public
