About the 6 week challenge

Everybody needs a little help

We're here to support Lancashire mums at the important early stages of motherhood, because nursing your baby for a few days or weeks provides fantastic health benefits.

Breastfeeding your baby for six weeks or longer will:

  • Help them to fight off infections. Your baby will have less chance of developing diarrhoea, vomiting, constipation and eczema.
  • Reduce the chance of them becoming obese and developing illnesses.
  • Help you burn around 500 calories a day.
  • Reduce your long term risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

If you decide to carry on for even longer, the benefits will increase!

Feedback

What mums think

New mums have been quick to point out how helpful our app has been. Want to see what they have had to say?

Lancashire mums have been delighted with the app:

  • "Really clear and quick when you need to record baby's feed. Exactly what you need in the early days. The app was invaluable when meeting with midwives as you have an instant record of feeds and nappies."
  • "I used it just for a few days at the start and it helped a great deal."
  • "It helped me a lot to know it was normal to struggle during the first six weeks. So I patiently waited for them to pass and indeed, everything got better after these six weeks, and I'm still breastfeeding, 38 weeks later."
