World Breastfeeding Week

This is World Breastfeeding Week. Anyone have any plans to celebrate Breastfeeding?

I will be helping with the Breastfeeding Carnival at my local WIC office. It should be fun and educational.

Re: World Breastfeeding Week

I'll have our monthly LLL meeting on Wednesday and will try to plan something a bit special for that in honor of WBW. I am hoping I'll have a baby by then to bring to the Big Latch On if not I may go and support the other nursing mamas.
