Brasserie Blanc Flashmob

 A few weeks ago, the Brasserie Blanc cafe in Cheltenham became famous around the world after hanging a sign outside its door, welcoming breastfeeding mothers to use them as a pit stop to feed, and have a free cup of tea. As last week was World Breastfeeding Week, Sling Beat (our local sling dance classes in Cheltenham) and Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters Network teamed up to surprise staff and customers with a sling dance flash mob. We had a lot of fun rehearsing over the last week, and it was wonderful to be part of such a celebration.
I will always be grateful for the invaluable help we received from Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters Network during the difficult early days of breastfeeding, and Joey and I have been regulars at Sling Beat classes for the last year, so it felt very special to be part of such an event. We were asked to wear pink, so I used my Artipoppe Two Birds Silvester wrap, which was perfect for the occasion. We had a really positive reaction from everyone watching the flashmob, and the video of the flash mob has since been shared around the world! Here it is if you haven't seen it yet!
