Quintessence Challenge

Every year Saskatoon Breastfeeding Matters organizes the Saskatoon location for the Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge. This challenge is an international event where mothers and children gather to compete for the most breastfeeding children in one spot at the same time. Although a winner is declared for the location with the most breastfeeding pairs, all breastfeeding mothers and children are the true winners as we all benefit.

The Challenge is held during World breastfeeding week every autumn as a fun way to celebrate and support breastfeeding. The event usually includes door prizes, snacks, presentations and demonstrations from local partners and of course the official “latch” time. We encourage friends, family and media to attend in order to promote a supportive community for breastfeeding. Saskatoon Breastfeeding Matters has participated in the Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge every year since 2002.
