Happy World Breastfeeding Week!

Happy World Breastfeeding Week, everyone! This year's theme is "Mother Support: Going for the Gold." As I've already discussed, support is so important to sustaining a mom's commitment to breastfeeding when times get rough. The objective is to get accurate information out there to new moms, help them when they need it and offer encouragement along the way.

To celebrate, some cool ladies in NYC will be taking the A train from 168th St. in Manhattan to Nostrand Ave in Brooklyn this afternoon, breastfeeding their babies all the way.

The Lauderhill mall in Lauderhill, FL will host the Broward Health Department, who will be providing breastfeeding information and help to all moms.

In Ohio, the Akron Zoo will have lactation consultants on hand to discuss breastfeeding and give out literature. They're going to raffle off some cool prizes and have a nursing station set up.

What's going on in your neck of the woods? Leave a comment!
