World Breastfeeding Week

It's World Breastfeeding Week!

Give a shout out to all of the breastfeeding mothers in the world! World Breastfeeding Week started yesterday and will continue until next Thursday. Mothers all over the globe are uniting to bring awareness to the positives effects of nursing their young.

While it's too late to register your own group for medals and prizes, it may not be too late to join in on one. La Leche League has a list of states and the activities going on in each of them.
As you will find out, some people celebrate all year long.

Happy nursing!

i was listening to a radio show about this today and they were talking about how children need to be taught that breast feeding is best from an early age and that television shows should show mothers nursing rather than bottle feeding. it occured to me that i don't remember EVER seeing a woman breast feed on tv. is it still that way?
