Hillview Nursery in Ferguslie can give itself a pat on the back for becoming Renfrewshire’s first Breastfeeding Friendly Nursery.
And staff have received certificates acknowledging their commitment to breastfeeding.
Hillview is now officially an environment where breastfeeding is promoted as a normal and natural way to feed infants.
Elaine Paterson, Health Improvement Practitioner with Renfrewshire Community Health Partnership, said:
“Congratulations to all of the staff for their efforts in promoting breastfeeding. The nursery has worked in collaboration with our Health Improvement Team to ensure that all the books and children’s toys reflect this message.
“Breastfeeding mums are welcomed into the nursery and all staff have attended an awareness raising session.
“Hillview also has information available for mothers who wish to find out more about breastfeeding or get support.”
