It’s August and it will be a busy, busy month for breastfeeding advocates and supporters. It’s Breastfeeding Month!
I started today breastfeeding my toddler. I can’t believe it’s been three years! Granted, he doesn’t nurse as much as he used to, of course, but it’s a morning ritual that we both enjoy. It’s been a long journey from this:
So are you ready for all the activities this month? To start off, there’s a breastfeeding “mob” to celebrate and spread awareness about nursing-in-public. I am a huge fan of nursing anywhere. I think it’s important to normalizing breastfeeding in our society, and a strong statement against the stigma, misconceptions and misinformation about breastfeeding.
The event is organized by admins and members of a Facebook group called Breastfeeding Pinays. It’s a great place to find support, information and guidance from the lactation experts onboard. If you haven’t done so, you may join the group by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/breastfeedingpinays/
So come on and join us! It will be on Saturday, August 3, at the Rajah Sulayman park in Manila. It’s the one with the fountains near Aristocrat along Roxas Boulevard. The activities start at 3pm.
