Paying women to breastfeed is patronising and offensive to new mums Should we be giving women shopping vouchers to encourage them to breastfeed? (Picture: Artem_Furman) We have one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world but I’m not sure mothers should effectively be paid to change this. That’s what’s happened in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, where some women were given shopping vouchers worth up to £200 in return for breastfeeding. This was a trial – a way to encourage more women to breastfeed – deemed so successful it may be extended to other parts of the country. But is this not putting even more pressure on women who have just […] Read more →

EastEnders: An early, and welcome, return for a familiar face Nasty Nick Cotton is back (Picture: BBC) EastEnders have been great at throwing in surprises just lately, and what a fab treat to get an early glimpse of Nasty Nick Cotton. Viewers weren’t expecting Dot’s wayward son, who she believes to be dead, to be onscreen until next week. While we were all shocked to see him so soon, that’s nothing compared to what Dot’s reaction will be! But why is Nick back, and what is he up to? Having blackmailed son Charlie into faking Nick’s death, Nick returning seemed a distant possibility. But fans of EastEnders know it is […] Read more →
