Don’t you love when generous people step forward and offer to help?! That’s exactly what Heather Diane, owner of Momma’s Tata Tasties, did when she sent us a Facebook message a few weeks ago. She is donating breastmilk boosting tasties to you guys out of the goodness of her heart! She is even covering the shipping costs and letting you choose your own flavors. We are asking for a small tax deductible donation of your choice to help us purchase new bags for new moms to be entered to win over $20 in prizes from Heather. Open to all US residents, winner to be announced on our Facebook page June 8th, 2016.
We spent the day today at the Arizona Breastfeeding Center, participating as a vendor in their Bump to Breast Fest. It was a fantastic event! There were classes every hour from baby wearing yoga, infant massage, milk circle, hospital births the way you want, going back to work and breastfeeding and even a post partum belly dance class. There were car seat safety checks, doulas, snacks, and free massages from Massage Envy Spa in Gilbert.
It was a joy to meet so many new mothers, see all the baby wearing and hear all the breastfeeding stories. There’s really nothing else we love to talk about here at the project! Almost everyone we met had a story about how Arizona Breastfeeding Center helped them, this place is a wonderful resource and I would highly recommend checking them out if you are expecting a baby any time soon. They hold a breastfeeding 101 class you can register for here. We hope that every woman will be able to breastfeed with no problems but sometimes that’s not the case and it’s nice to know there is a place like this where truly genuine IBCLC’s want to help you.
Thank you Desiree and Jenny for including us today. We had a wonderful time! Be on the look out for more partnerships between the AZ Breastfeeding Bag Project and the Arizona Breastfeeding Center.
We also held a raffle today for a 2 hour lactation consult with the Arizona Breastfeeding Center, generously donated by them. The winner was ticket # 123067 Jenn B. Congratulations!
