Case Studies of Breastfeeding Practices at NZ Childcare Centres.
REPORT: Developing Breastfeeding-Friendly Childcare to Support Mothers in Paid Employment and Studying.

The project consisted of two stages. Stage One, which was prepared by Judith Galtry and Marcia Annandale, examined ways in which New Zealand workplaces might become more breastfeeding-friendly and was aimed at employers.

Stage Two (this report) consisted of a small-scale, exploratory study examining support for breastfeeding within two New Zealand childcare centres and outlining a set of preliminary, draft guidelines for “breastfeeding-friendly” childcare.

The objectives of the second stage of the project (the focus of this report) were:

  1. To present case studies of breastfeeding practises at childcare centres seeking to improve support for breastfeeding and identifying possible barriers and solutions. 
  2. To produce a set of draft guidelines for early childhood services and childcare centre administrators on the benefits and practicalities of supporting mothers in paid employment or studying, taking into consideration the national and international literature in this area. The purpose of the objective was to help to advance the goal of equal employment opportunity for women in New Zealand.
