Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
The theme of World Breastfeeding Week 2014 is all about increasing awareness and sustaining the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding. We couldn't think of any better way to celebrate a whole week dedicated to the awesomeness of breastfeeding than to have another ULTIMATE World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway!
World Breastfeeding Week is a time to celebrate breastfeeding mothers around the world, as well as recognize the barriers that these same mothers face as they strive to meet their personal breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding, as all things having to do with parenting a child, requires a supportive network that guides, provides helpful advice, and elevates a mother's self-esteem. Mother to mother support, in addition to community support and education, are crucial to a mother's personal breastfeeding success.
To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2014, over 15 breastfeeding-supportive companies have donated items for an enormous Breastfeeding Mom Prize Package, valued at over $1000! First, we'd like to introduce you to the co-hosts of the Ultimate World Breastfeeding Week giveaway. Then, we'll share all of the goodies that have been so graciously donated.
