Join the Breastfeeding Challenge 2008

Join us to celebrate breastfeeding in a fun "competition" where every
child "wins" because they are breastfed!!

What: Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge 2008 This fun event is a
challenge for which geographic area ( province, state or territory)
has the most breastfeeding babies, as a percentage of the
birthrate, "latched on." at 11am local time.

When: October 11th, 2008 10:30am

Why: to celebrate breastfeeding and demonstrate promotion, protection
and support for breastfeeding women and their families. It's a chance
for education and peer support done in a fun social way.

I would really like to see some of our local non-profits and BFing supportive businesses represented at the event (LLL, ICAN, FoMM, DGSL, etc). Lactations in Fairview Heights has committed to being present at the event, I'd like to see a few other! If you're involved in any of these organizations, please email me briana@stlouismommies.com
