A breast­feed­ing group has cel­e­brated its first birth­day.

Mem­bers of the Breast­feed­ing Net­work held a party to mark one year since the cre­ation of the char­ity.

The fun event was well at­tended by around 16 of the 30 lo­cal fam­i­lies who have been at­tend­ing the weekly meet­ing at Wood­lands Pri­mary School on Thurs­day morn­ings.

The event came in the run up to Na­tional Breast­feed­ing Cel­e­bra­tion Week, which started yes­ter­day.

Breast­feed­ing Week runs with the theme of chang­ing the myths around breast­feed­ing cul­ture.

The Breast­feed­ing Net­work is well es­tab­lished in Ren­frew­shire, with groups also meet­ing in West John­stone Learn­ing Cen­tre on Tues­days and the Tan­nahill Cen­tre on Fri­days.

Trained vol­un­teers, who are also lo­cal mums who have breast­fed, are on hand to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion and sup­port for par­ents at any stage and help­ing fam­i­lies to reach their own breast­feed­ing goals.

The net­work’s next lo­cal event is a Teddy Bears Pic­nic, to be held in the grounds of Wood­lands Pri­mary School on Thurs­day, Au­gust 3, from 11.30am to 1pm.
