Share your Breastfeeding Journey Story

World Breastfeeding Week

October 1-7, 2016 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 BC residents that they have an important role in making communities more breastfeeding friendly.

Tell us about your breastfeeding 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!

The contest is now over. If you’d still like to share your breastfeeding journey, please feel free to send it via our Contact Form. Please keep watching the blog for your breastfeeding stories!
