On Saturday, September 29 2018 mothers in Powell River joined an international breastfeeding challenge.
There were 11 moms total breastfeeding this year! There were prizes, babies playing and lots of yummy snacks! This year the breastfeeding challenge led up to the beginning of Canadian World Breastfeeding Week. It’s great to see our community supportive of breastfeeding promotion and support. Although we don’t have many breastfeeding resources we are lucky to have many health care providers and a wonderful La Leche League group who are supportive and helpful in promoting breastfeeding.
Here’s some images from the challenge! Maybe next year we can have an even bigger turnout! Lets continue to support, educate, and promote mothers, fathers, grandparents, families etc on the benefits of breastmilk and breastfeeding. Education, support and promotion is key to establishing your childs health right off the bat—and don’t we all just want the best for our children?
PS. To all of you who could not breastfeed or choose not to breastfeed, I see you. I respect you & you too are doing the very best for your child. XO
