Have You Started a Local Breastfeeding Initiative?

Helping my sister latch her new baby on
Have you been involved in a project with the purpose of normalizing or promoting breastfeeding and/or nursing in public? For example:

A video montage of breastfeeding mothers nursing at local points of interest;

A place of refuge for breastfeeding mothers like "Breastaurant";

Free lactation bags for new mothers at a local hospital.

We are looking for stories about your creative efforts to normalize breastfeeding in your communities. We would like to share your experiences as well as step by step instructions on how our readers could duplicate your efforts in their own communities.

Mothers all over the world would love to build on your ideas - please share them with us!

If you or someone you know has helped create a unique breastfeeding project or initiative, please contact us: NursingFreedom (at) gmail (dot) com.

I participated in a photo shoot of mom's nursing in public. The photos were used to create a pamphlet for new mom's to have through wic. Trying to teach young mom's that nursing in public is normal and okay. It was quite liberating.

That is awesome Lynsay - any chance you could get your hands on that pamphlet and maybe share some more of your experience? Could you talk to WIC and see if they've had any positive responses? I'd love to hear more!
