National Breastfeeding Month (Here in Austin)

on Aug 25, 2015 in Central Texas News, News

Every year our coalition works to raise awareness and hold fun family friendly events in August (National Breastfeeding Month) that seek to normalize breastfeeding and increase awareness of breastfeeding resources in our area.  Events for this year included 2 latch on events, (Baby Earth in Round Rock and Natural Baby Company in Austin) A concert in the park and City of Austin proclamation of August as Breastfeeding Awareness Month, and the Round Rock Express game highlighting Mother’s Milk Bank of Austin.  It looks as though our breastfeeding month activities will extend beyond August as we plan to host a movie in the park with a great breastfeeding documentary but due to unforeseeable circumstances that has been postponed (stay tuned, we will let you know when plans are finalized).  Thanks to our sponsors we were able to give away over 200 breastfeeding awareness shirts.  If you were unable to make it to our events but would still like to have the t shirt please visit our store page

These businesses have gone above and beyond to support breastfeeding mothers in our area and are featured on this year’s breastfeeding awareness t shirts.  Please support them.
