#13 | Breastfeeding: Any Boob In A Storm

Jan 08, 2018, 06:00 AM

On Sparking Change this week we highlight Breastfeeding! According to the World Health Organization, if every child was breastfed within an hour of birth, given only breast milk for their first six months of life, and continued up to the age of two years, about 800 000 child lives would be saved every year.

Dil shares her own experience of tandem breastfeeding her 2 year old and 5 month old with her wife or as they call it “any boob in a storm”!

We are joined by a panel of breastfeeding advocates and experts as we ask why are Irish breastfeeding rates one of the lowest in the world?

We also ask our panel to share tips and any advice for new parents who are considering embarking on their breastfeeding journey.

Finally as we are talking about the wonders of Boobie Power we are also joined by Stand Up Comedian Diane O’Connor who shares her adventures as part of her new show Breastfeeding Al Fresco!
