Mums on the Fylde coast are being urged to heed the message ‘There’s no milk like mum’s milk’.
For Breastfeeding Week, which starts on August 1, Medicx Pharmacy Blackpool is inviting parents to drop in to Whitegate Health Centre, Whitegate Drive, to find out about benefits of breastfeeding.
They can get tips on which medicines are safe to use while breastfeeding, information on support groups, as well as advice on common conditions.
Trishul Patel, Blackpool pharmacy manager, said: “Giving your baby breast milk is giving your baby the best start in life.
“In addition to the health benefits, breast milk is always available at the right temperature and there is no preparation, bottle-washing or sterilising.”
