Are warnings about drinking and breastfeeding clear enough?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

A warning has been issued to mothers who breastfeed about not drinking, after a two-month-old baby was found to have six times the legal drink-driving limit of alcohol in her system. Do you think the warnings are clear? What is your experience with breastfeeding? (Please put NFP if your comments are not for publication.)

Meet Parminder Singh (Punjabi) who shares his journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi:

“Studying in the Pōkaitahi Reo programme has allowed me to develop a totally beautiful and unique relationship with Māori communities. The learning has helped my work to bridge gaps between Māori and others in our multicultural communities. When I look back, I feel really proud. It’s a great feeling when I speak te reo Māori. It’s a privilege.”
