Breastfeeding Challenge 2008

Interested in supporting breastfeeding women?
What? Join us for the Breastfeeding Challenge 2008!
When? The Challenge takes place on Saturday, October 11th, 2008, with "latch on" occurring at 11am. (arrive at 10:30 to get settled in/sign media release)
Where? Starbucks at 96th and Allisonville.
Why? Last year, there were 230 sites with over 5,383 babies. It's easy; it's FREE and it makes a point -- Breastfeeding and donor milk banking is important! We are calling all women in WORLD to support this effort! Register a site or just pass the message onto a friend who might be interested. Go to www.babyfriendly.ca for more information. Be counted in! Remember--WHO (the World Health Organization) recommends breastfeeding until a minimum of age 2, or as long as is mutually desirable.
***The event is a non-profit, health promotion/event to raise awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding in the community and in the global media. It is an excellent chance for mothers to meet other mothers and local professionals.
If you're not a breastfeeding mom, pass this info onto someone who may be interested. If you're not in the Indy area, just go to the site to check for a location in your area or register one.
