 This event is going to be amazing, Sarah and Heidi are killing themselves to make it so--We need lots of Mamas and Babes to attend.

 

Please spread the word!

Okay, second try.

Somehow a finished reply just disappeared. More coffee needed.:coffee

 

The Breastfeeding challenge was, of course, fabulous.

Very nice atmosphere, 65 mamas and babes were counted in the official latch-on.

The Swag Bags were amazing, the door prizes spectacular.

 

Evymama will be sponsoring next year as well.

Contact sarahkaplan@evymama.ca or info@evymama.ca if you are interested in participating in any way--

as a sponsor or donor.

Pregnant and or breastfeeding models will be needed for the fashions show as well!

 

Nurse and be counted!
