Baby’s Day Out gives mothers the perfect opportunity to engage with fellow mums and their peers, advocate for a breastfeeding inclusive society and celebrate their ability to nurture their babies anywhere they choose. In doing so, we are contributing to the world’s Sustainable Development Goals and celebrating breastfeeding as a normal, natural way of life.

Where: Buttenshaw Park, Springwood

ABA Lismore Group

Lismore Group also makes Baby’s Day Out an annual opportunity for past members and friends of Nursing Mothers and the Australian Breastfeeding Association to come together and share stories just as they did when their babies were young. 

The bonds we establish as new mums are so important in supporting our mothering journey. That journey continues as our children grow and become adults and parents themselves.

Please join us to celebrate Baby’s Day Out and the bonding of mothers with babies and mothers with their support team. We’ll be at Tullera Hall (10 minutes north of Lismore) from 10-1pm. There’s a lovely shady park with some play equipment for the children and the Hall to use if it’s raining.

When: 10:00am-1:00pm, Sunday 30 October 

Where: Tullera Community Hall - 682 Dunoon Road, Tullera, NSW 2480
