Who knew that the simplest (also to mention FREE) and safest way to provide for your newborn babies life would cause such dramatic chaos – worldwide! How to breastfeed, where to breastfeed, when to breastfeed, who I can breasted around, are you OK with breastfeeding, are THEY ok with me breastfeeding?!? The ridiculousness of the whole thing goes on and on and on. No one looks at you and says “Are you REALLY going to eat salad with THAT fork? Because you’re too young, too old, too messy, you look weird, I wasn’t ect. ect. ect.”
Check out this comical video:
I am a HUGE supporter for breastfeeding so how EXCITING is this Breastfeeding Challenge coming up:
Breastfeeding Challenge – Saturday, September 30th @ 11am @ WEM
“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.
Why?? To celebrate breastfeeding and milk-banking, 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.”
Even in different provinces the challenge continues! Will you take part, wherever you are?
“Every year, on the 40th Saturday of the year at 11:00 am, mothers and children unite at different sites around the world to compete in the annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge to set a record for the most children breastfeeding at one time. The Challenge strives to increase public awareness of the normality of breastfeeding, the benefits to mother, child and community and the ways in which women need support to achieve the recommended duration for breastfeeding.”
If you are in Calgary (or want to go for the drive) on September 30th (Where the Northern Star Mothers Milk Bank is located) check out:
“FREE Parking! FREE Entry! This market will be set up in the courtyard of the new location of the NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank and all vendors will be donating a portion of their sales or items for door prizes/silent auctions. This is a great time to support local businesses while also supporting a great cause.”
Where will you be on September 30th at 11am? Will you accept the challenge and “Latch On”? If so, I’d LOVE to hear about it! Share your photos on social media tagging @saveymommy #saveymommy
