    Default Breastfeeding challenge

    Hey everyone,

    There is a worldwide event happening October 11th. The challenge is to have as many women as possible, breastfeeding at 11am. Check your local area and find out where the challenge is happening near you.

    In Vancouver BC the challenge is at the Trout lake community centre.

    Here is a link to worldwide sites.

    Back in 1997 I met the man, Wah Wong, who started the breastfeeding challenge. He passed away a few months before the first one took place. Wah was a great breastfeeding advocate and, I believe, had worked with Unicef, which is where he developed his passion to support breastfeeding.

    Neat idea, but none happening around me. I'm surprised that there are so few happening in the U.S.

    Maybe next year the LLL or someone can organize something near you and you will be an avid EN'er.

    The BFing challenge has only been going since 2002, so it is fairly new.

    When you are feeding your baby at 1100, think of all the other women out there who are doing the same thing around the world.
