Parenting Today Library Talk - Breast Feeding
Speaker: Public Health Nurse
Breastfeeding offers a newborn’s first vaccine, providing vital antibodies and an immunity boost. It is one of the most effective ways to provide your child with the best start in life. To mark World Breast Feeding Week, Gorey Library will host this talk to support parents in breastfeeding and to emphasise the benefits of establishing exclusive breastfeeding. Feeding babies breast milk for the first six months has a myriad of benefits, among them, it promotes brain development, protects against allergies and eczema, reduces the risk of viruses and reduces the risk of children becoming overweight.
