 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!


The 2013 Annual Toronto Breastfeeding Challenge will be hosted for the first time this year by Evymama Nursing & Maternity. The event, titled "The Ladies Who Latch", will take place at 918 Bathurst Street in the Great Hall, from 10am to 12pm on Saturday, October 5th, with registration beginning at 9:30am. Participants will enjoy a live musical performance by Toronto singer-songwriter Gavin Slate, a breastfeeding fashion show, a baby and child judo demonstration, and hors d’oeuvres, with the official latch-on taking place at 11am. All mothers and their nurslings of all ages are welcome to attend in numbers.

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!
