Breastfeeding in Fairfield

Breastfeeding Welcome Here stickers

Breastfeeding welcome sticker

Breastfeeding in public isn’t easy. Fairfield City Council is building a physical and social environment which supports young families to have the healthiest start to life. This project is part of our systems approach to address childhood obesity, in which breastfeeding can provide protective factors against. We encourage families to follow the Australian Breastfeeding Associations information.

Fairfield City Council in partnership with South West Sydney Local Health District is working to improve the communities health. Breastfeeding as a behaviour is a focus area because South West Sydney has rates 15% lower than any other district in NSW of exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months of age.

We are working with our facilities, Early Learning Centres, Human Resources, Assets teams and are happy to work with you too.

What can you do?

We would like to encourage safe spaces for breastfeeding by placing stickers across the City.

The “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” sticker is a resource you can order to display at your business.

If you would like to order a sticker, please contact us on scd@fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au.
