Oct. 1-7 marks World Breastfeeding Week in Canada, an annual celebration to raise awareness of, and support for, the importance of breastfeeding.
This year's theme is "an investment in healthy communities," an opportunity to remind northern B.C. residents that they have an important role in making communities more breastfeeding friendly.
Tell us about your journey!
Breastfeeding is a natural and normal way of feeding infants and young children. But we all need support and guidance sometimes. Share the story of your breastfeeding journey to help support those who may need encouragement when facing their own experiences!
We want to hear from all perspectives – whether you're a mom, a dad, a partner, or a family member of a breastfeeding mom, your journey is your own!
All submissions will be entered into a random draw for one of two great prizes, including an Ameda breast milk pump!
