9 Ways Google Can Help Us Normalize Breastfeeding

Wouldn't it be amazing if Google used its global influence to help us normalize breastfeeding?

World Breastfeeding Week takes place from August 1 - 7, 2012, and Dionna at Code Name: Mama has brainstormed several ways Google can join the celebration. Joni Rae of Tales of a Kitchen Witch contributed her artistic talents.

So today, please visit Code Name: Mama and check out her nine ideas on how Google can help us normalize breastfeeding. They include fun things like featuring a Google Breastfeeding Doodle (see all of Joni Rae's drawings at her site!) or transforming the Google Maps pegman into a breastfeeding pegwoman, to more serious suggestions such as not accepting advertising from companies that are not WHO Code compliant.

And we would love it if you would help us get Google's attention by sending them an email - there is an example email at the bottom of Dionna's post. Let's get Google to help us celebrate World Breastfeeding Week!


This is pretty cool! I really wish breastfeeding was "normal" thing to do! I am pleased that it seems like everyday I slowly start to run into more and more people who "support" breastfeeding and don't look at me like I'm some sort of pervert even though my son is only 3 months old.

My personal breastfeeding journeys have been so different. My first daughter was born without the ability to suck, she was a "lazy" latcher, suffered from painful Silent Reflux for the first 12 months. Experienced poor weight gain at 5 months old and I battled with a breastmilk imbalance. man health tablets But my second daughter was a completely different story! Her first latch lasted 45 minutes! She was a happy Nummie Lover and we are still experiencing our breastfeeding journey 33 months and counting.
