Enabling breastfeeding - making a difference for working parents
This year's theme highlights the responsibility of governments, policymakers, workplaces, and communities to support the needs of working parents, so that women are able to combine breastfeeding and work if they choose to.
ABA is excited to announce the launch of our new Breastfeeding-Friendly Early Childhood Education and Care program as a new initiative to help ensure breastfeeding families have the support they need from their Early Childhood Education and Care provider.
As more and more mothers return to work within the recommended timeframe for breastfeeding, ECEC providers have an important and growing role to play in supporting mothers' decisions to combine breastfeeding and work.
The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) recognition provides Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services with materials to support breastfeeding mothers of infants and young children in their care.
