Worldwide Breastfeeding Week 2011

Join us for World Breastfeeding Week's celebration on August 1-5!

Start early in July & enter the Mom and Baby Moment Photo Contest (need not be breastfeeding to enter) for a chance at prizes & gift certificates!

Look for our honorees in the newspapers and on-line (like right here). We have an individual, a small business and a large business, all who advcoate and support breastfeeding in Grant County! (See previous honorees)

Join us for the celebration on Friday, Aug 5, 2011!

In the morning, WIC will pamper 198 moms who are breastfeeding in southwest New Mexico at the Grant County Business and Conference Center. These ladies have saved over $237,600 for their families and tax payers by making a healthy choice for their babies future (and cut their medical costs by a third!).

At 5 p.m., the party moves to Western New Mexico University (WNMU) Miller Library for the Mom and Baby Moment Photograph Display with the announcement of the photo contest winners, naming our WBFW Honorees, and a screening of the acclaimed documentary, Babies. If that's not enough -- refreshments, too!
