Breastfeeding Challenge 2020 - Can We Count You In?
In 2020, breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and donor milk-banking need support around the world.
Join us to celebrate breastfeeding in a fun “competition” where every child “wins” because they are breastfed, chestfed or receive human milk!
We celebrate breastfeeding, chestfeeding and milk-banking, and demonstrate promotion, protection and support for breastfeeding parents and their families. It’s a chance for education and peer support done in a fun social way.
Quintessence Foundation holds the Challenge to provide support for breastfeeding and chestfeeding parents. Breastfeeding has many well-documented benefits including better health for both parents and babies. However, many fail to meet their own breastfeeding or chestfeeding goals and wean their children prematurely, well before meeting the recommended guidelines. Two of the biggest hurdles continue to be lack of support and marginalization by the community.
The Challenge strives to increase public awareness of the normalcy of breastfeeding and chestfeeding, the benefits to the parent, child and community and the ways in which parents need support to achieve the recommended duration for breastfeeding.
Please note this challenge is for parents only. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the National Office via office@LLLC.ca
