What is Baby’s Day Out?

This year, the Australian Breastfeeding Association is encouraging women to 'bond for breastfeeding' - bond with their babies, bond with other mums and even bond with nature by getting out and about in the lovely spring air. Mothers are protected by law and have the right to breastfeed whenever and wherever they choose. Baby's Day Out aims to support, inspire and instil confidence in mums to breastfeed their babies anytime, anywhere - at the shops, at a cafe, at the beach, at the park, even on a plane! When a baby's needs call, it is her mother's natural instinct to feed.

Socialising with others is a fantastic way to share experiences and extend support to mums who may not feel as comfortable feeding in public. 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.

How can I participate?

  1. 1.   Please join us on Sunday 30th October 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. Please bring a plate of food to share for morning tea and a picnic lunch if you want to stay on.

Relatives, friends and neighbours are all welcome too!

  1. Contribute to our Gofundraise account and donate funds at https://makingadifference.gofundraise.com.au/page/ABALismore

All funds will be spent in the local Lismore Group area to:

a)    provide breastfeeding information and support to new parents and health professionals in our local community

b)   provide ongoing education for our Lismore Group volunteer breastfeeding counsellors and community educators .

 

Do I have to have a young breastfeeding baby to attend?

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.

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.
