Breastfeeding Challenge 2011

Tomorrow, October 1st, is the Breastfeeding Challenge.  In Canada, it kicks off World Breastfeeding Week, which we celebrate from Oct 1st to 7th (I don’t know why it’s two months later than when most of the rest of the world celebrated it!)

The Breastfeeding Challenge is not just a Canadian event, though.  This year it is being held in 15 countries.  The event is intended to raise awareness and support for breastfeeding.  At 11am local time, all the participants will simultaneously nurse.  Cheers to the world’s largest latch on!

Momzelle is proud to be a sponsor of over 100 Breastfeeding Challenges in North America.  We hope that women in all communities find the support they need.  This event is a great opportunity to meet other breastfeeding moms.  Is there a Challenge in your community?  Click here to find out.

We would love to hear if you are attending an event this year or have attended one in the past!
