In Honor of Breastfeeding…Let’s Celebrate

 

I have been breastfeeding for so long (not the same child, but seven children, and consecutively, not all at once) and been involved with La Leche League for so long that sometimes I forget to stop and celebrate the miracle of breastfeeding. It will never cease to amaze me that we as women have been blessed with the ability to make the perfect food for our babies. What a miracle! I had to be reminded by a Facebook post from a friend, Sally, that this week, the first week of August, is World Breastfeeding Week. She posted the cutest cartoon about breastfeeding in public. As soon as I figure out how to share it I will.

 

Here are some events associated with WBW in Utah. If you are outside of Utah, go to Facebook and do a search for WBW to find events in your area. If you are not breastfeeding, or even if you are, I encourage you to smile at the next woman you see breastfeeding in public. And offer to get her a drink of water or a plateful of food.
