Derbyshire mums and their children joined forces for a celebration to mark National Breastfeeding Awareness Week.
The event, entitled Big Feed, was held in Hall Leys Park, Matlock where activities include face-painting and crafts.
The Breastmates Volunteer Peer Supporters provided home-made cakes for donations to their funds.
Every mum who attended took home a goodie bag.

The celebration was arranged by Breastmates, breastfeeding support worker Andrea Rawson and the health visiting team from Derbyshire Community Health Services.
