Nelson’s Breastfeeding Challenge 2010 On Saturday, October 2, 11 am at the Chahko-Mika Mall in Nelson, moms and children will gather for the Breastfeeding Challenge to set the world record for most children nursing simultaneously. All families are welcome at this free event — those who breastfeed full-time, parttime, with a lactation aid, twins, tandem nursers. Especially welcome are dads, partners, grandparents and ALL supporters of breastfeeding. Every year, Canada celebrates World Breastfeeding Week during the first week of October. World Breastfeeding Week celebrates the importance of breastfeeding for all women, children, families and communities. Breastfeeding is the gold standard for infant feeding. Breast milk provides optimal nutrition and has hundreds of antibodies, enzymes, and other factors that protect babies from infections and disease and support optimal development. Health Canada, the World Health Organization, Unicef and many other national and international organizations recommend exclusive breastfeeding until six months of age and then a combination of breastfeeding and solid foods until two years or older. Come join us for this fun, free event. Snacks will be provided and there will be a draw for door prizes that have been generously donated by the community. For more information about Nelson’s Breastfeeding Challenge 2010, call Myrna Lindblom at 250-505-7205.
