Breastfeeding Day this Saturday!

Saturday, October 2
11:00 am EXACTLY

Sponsored by the Quintessence Foundation

Join Mothers & Company in West Boylston to celebrate breastfeeding in a fun "competition" where every child "wins" because they are breastfed.

This fun event is a challenge for which geographic area (province, state or territory) has the most breastfeeding babies/toddlers, as a percentage of the birthrate, "latched on" at 11am local time. In 2009, there were 4,766 babies at 246 sites in 21 countries! Mothers & Company is proud to be the first site registered in Massachusetts. Let's make a good showing and latch on and be counted (and encourage more sites in Mass next year)!

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. Tell your friends!

"Latch on": 11am local time at Mothers & Company. Come and be counted! We'll have door prizes, too!
