Youngsters join mums for 'breast is best' message.

More than 70 mums, dads and their young children descended on the National Assembly building to send out the message 'breast is best'.

The families were promoting the normality of breastfeeding in public and highlighting its health benefits, as part of a nationwide Big Feed on the last day of National Breastfeeding Awareness Week 2006.

Breastfeeding adviser for Cardiff and the Vale NHS Trust and breastfeeding counsellor, Joan Buckley, said: 'We want the public to see that breastfeeding is normal and that we can go out and breast-feed anywhere or at any time.'

Eliza Templeton, 26, full-time mum to Nia, 20 months, from Cyncoed, Cardiff, who runs a breastfeeding group at Cardiff Royal Infirmary, said: 'We just wanted to increase people's awareness.'
