This week the 4th Annual Breastfeeding Cafe opens downtown at the Main Library in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week. With a nod to the 2009 WBW theme, “Breastfeeding: A Vital Emergency Response,” this year’s Cafe theme is “Breastfeeding Saves the Day!” The Cafe will be open daily August 1-31 with mothers’ circles, classes, and a friendly environment to take a nursing break. Check out the events calendar on the blog site and come on down.
A diverse and spirited group of nursing moms and breastfeeding advocates volunteer at the Cafe. This is a fun way to meet new people and demonstrate to the community that Yes, breastfeeding is important and life sustaining, but more than that, breastfeeding is a normal everyday expectation. If you would like to sign up for a shift, just email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org for all the details. You know you’re going to be hanging out with your baby and nursing — why not head downtown and spend a couple hours nursing in the most welcoming spot in Salt Lake?! Come on down and let breastfeeding save YOUR day!La Leche League of Salt Lake City partners with the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition to produce the annual Breastfeeding Cafe.
