Award Guidelines

What is a Mother/Baby Friendly Business?
    This is a business or organization that welcomes mothers and babies and supports parents in the everyday but sometimes challenging task of shopping and accessing business and services. They recognize that sometimes mothers need to shop with babies, young children, and strollers and that some people have more difficulty than others in using commercial and retail services. Mother/Baby Friendly businesses welcome all families and try to accommodate their needs.

    For many people, the experiences of family, children, shopping and community life are linked.  Families need to shop and eat, and many studies point to children as having increasing influence over their families spending patterns.  The experience of shopping is often more than a simple business transaction.

County makes up a diverse and growing community, and is home to a high proportion of families and children. The adoption and promotion of Mother/Baby Friendly business practices provides an opportunity for the area to develop as a Mother/Baby Friendly area that attracts a wide range of people by meeting their commercial and administrative needs as well their sense of belonging, identity and community.

usinesses that are Mother/Baby Friendly will be eligible to display the international symbol that designates an area Mother/Baby Friendly.
