As a breastfeeding mum you will have endless thoughts and conversations about your breasts and milk production. Our weekly blogs discuss the varied aspects and concerns surrounding breastfeeding in the hope we can educate and support you with friendly, informative parenting advice.
When your nursing journey comes to an end, you'll be more aware of what your boobs look and feel like than ever before and will undoubtedly, instinctively, be paying more attention to the changes in your breasts. For this reason, our designer Charlotte decided CoppaFeel! breast cancer charity would be the ideal beneficiaries to receive support through the sale of her breastfeeding tops.
For every Sweetheart Nursing Tee £26 sold, £2 is donated to CoppaFeel! and with emails such as these, we hope to remind and educate you all about the importance of regularly checking for any changes to your boobs.
"The C Word"
If you caught the heartfelt drama "The C Word" on BBC May 3rd based on the account of one woman's fight with secondary breast cancer, you'll understand why we wish to raise awareness of breast cancer in younger women like you. CoppaFeel!'s founder Kris, who lives with advanced breast cancer, plays a small part in the film which she details in her own blog here. If you haven't seen it, we encourage you to watch it now on BBC iPlayer . Then check your breasts.
Check your breasts
We all need to look after our breasts. Breast checking can identify the early signs of breast cancer making treatments more effective and survival rates higher. Teach your family that breast checking is a normal healthy habit and lead by example. Once you've stopped breastfeeding, know what normal feels like & check your breasts monthly. Thank your breasts for breastfeeding your babies by keeping yourself in good health. Work out what normal feels like to you so that when you do your monthly boob check, you know what abnormalities feel like and can seek early diagnosis if necessary.
