HEALTHY START

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

MOTHER-of-four Leigh Lit­tle, 32, of Willes­bor­ough, be­lieves more moth­ers should feed their ba­bies nat­u­rally. Leigh is a mem­ber of Ash­ford SureS­tart and is cur­rently train­ing to teach new moth­ers to breast­feed, as an NCT breast­feed­ing coun­sel­lor. Her chil­dren are aged from 14 months to 13 years. “In my opin­ion, my chil­dren are much health­ier for hav­ing been breast­fed,” she said. “The bond­ing process be­tween my­self and my chil­dren was much greater be­cause of that. “My son was bot­tlefed and went on to de­velop asthma and eczema. “My three girls were breast­fed and they haven’t de­vel­oped any­thing.”
