Baby Welcome and Baby Welcome Plus Awards


What are the Baby Welcome and Welcome Plus Awards?

The Baby Welcome and Welcome Plus Awards aim to encourage breastfeeding mums to confidently breastfeed in public and aims to reduce the stigmas of breastfeeding in public. The awards will contribute to the campaign, as the awards will be presented to businesses and community venues that prove to provide a welcoming environment for women feeding their children and families in the premises.

The businesses and community venues that are awarded with either a Baby Welcome or Welcome Plus award will be advertised on the campaign’s website.

The Different Between Baby Welcome and Baby Friendly

Any business or community venue that provides a welcoming environment for breastfeeding mums is considered as baby welcome. However, it is important for a Mother to feel confident knowing what facilities are available for their baby within that premise. Therefore, the awards have been spilt into two categories, detailed below:
