Lethbridge Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week!!
Lethbridge celebrated World Breastfeeding Week! I know Canada usually celebrates in October -- and we are going to do that too, with the Breastfeeding Challenge on October 3rd.
We decided to do celebrate this week by having an informal nurse-in/latch-on at 10:30 this morning. The response was overwhelming!
Today, mamas, babies and kids (over 70 altogether!) met at Park Place Mall to show support for breastfeeding in Lethbridge and around the world. There were babies/children age 7 weeks to about 4 years breastfeeding!! It was so exciting to see Lethbridge Mamas stepping up and proclaiming the benefits of breastfeeding -- one more step to normalizing breastfeeding in our city, province and country. With only 14% of babies breastfeeding at 6 months, we still have a ways to go.
