Breastfeeding awareness week
A new mum from Chester who's pioneering breastfeeding says it's brought her closer to her daughter.
It's national breastfeeding awareness week which aims to raise awareness of the benefits the baby gets from breast milk.
The main aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the health benefits of breastfeeding, increase social acceptance of breastfeeding and promote support for breastfeeding.
Andrea Gray from Chester, breastfeeds her six month daughter called Sammy:
'It's a really special thing to do with your child. It's something that no one else can do with her. So for me that was really important so that I could have that special time with her.'
'I'd encourage any new mums to try breastfeeding, it takes a while to establish it. But once you establish it it's fantastic and quite easy. It's a lot easier than sterilising a bottle. It's just a really nice time for you and your baby.'
