Oh, we will probably celebrate then too

Seems like an important message to get across at every chance possible.

We have such a great momentum going here when it comes to promoting breastfeeding and attachment parenting. I am honoured to know so many amazing local moms who are committed to promoting these ideals at every given chance Our little city has sure come a long way!

(just a shameless plug for what looks like it will be an amazing event!)

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.


Thank you to all those who donated: EcoBaby Canada (Andrea), LLLC Lethbridge South, Sandra's Secret, Discovery Toys (Vicki), Lemurkins Nursing Cover (Rosina), Wee Wigglers (Melanie), Word to the Wall (Stacey), Made with Love Cards (Candy), Suzie Q (Christa)!!

I am looking forward to being at the October 3rd event in a supportive role. DD is still nursing but will be with her dad in another city that day.

I really wish I could come to the Birthing and Bonding conference, but It's 2 weeks before my due date

It would have been a wonderful experience!

And congrats on the response to your nurse-in!

That's too bad that you can't come to the conference... hypothetically speaking... IF you did come and go in to labour, you'd have the best of the best there to take care of you. lol.

We will definitely be celebrating then too! In conjunction with the conference, there will be an open to the public segment that includes an amazing Babywearing Fashion Show, the breastfeeding challenge. On top of that, there will be a panel that will include the keynote speakers at the conference.

It's going to be an amazing morning!
