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.
