Breast is best

Ayrshire Post - - Fishy Story -

A school is prov­ing breast is best by back­ing a feed­ing cam­paign for mums.

Ayr Gram­mar has signed up to the Breast­feed Hap­pily Here scheme.

The project ed­u­cates busi­nesses, staff and the pub­lic on le­gal rights of mums to feed in pub­lic.

Venues dis­play a sticker to let all cus­tomers know that breast­feed­ing in pub­lic is pro­tected by law.

Al­i­son Coxon, Deputy Head at Ayr Gram­mar, said: “We wel­come and sup­port breast­feed­ing mums while on school premises.

“And we hope that other schools in South Ayr­shire join the scheme too and help nor­malise breast­feed­ing for our chil­dren.”

Coun­cil chiefs hope to sign up all 50 of their schools in due course.
