World Breastfeeding Week 2010!

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it’s World Breastfeeding Week already!

This year’s theme is Breastfeeding: Just 10 Steps!

What did I do to support breastfeeding this year? Well, one major thing was that I volunteered as a model.

Check out La Leche League Canada’s article about this year’s theme!



Remember how I posted about the knitted breast giveaway? Well, I won!!!! I’ll be choosing a pair of wheat/berry crocheted breasts for my good friend and fellow LLL leader who also happens to be a doula and childbirth educator. I can’t wait to give them to her!

It’s World Breastfeeding Week!

Yay, breastfeeding!!!!!

What are you doing for World Breastfeeding Week 2009? This post from Melodie at Breastfeeding Moms Unite! gives a tonne of suggestions of things you can do to support breastfeeding this week – check ’em out and let me know if any of them gave you some ideas! Some things I’m doing to promote breastfeeding awareness include breastfeeding Gwen at home and in public, talking about breastfeeding to whoever will listen (:)), and blogging about breastfeeding. I’m also a La Leche League member and the best thing I’m doing for World Breastfeeding Week?

I’ve helped organize my La Leche League group’s Walk for Breastfeeding, which is taking place this Saturday, August 8 – and so far I’ve raised $365!!! These funds are sorely needed as it has been a long time since our group has had decent membership rates and has had the members to do some good fundraising. If you want to sponsor me, I have Paypal 😉 And if you want to know more about the walk, drop me a comment.
