Breastfeeding in Public
>> Protection Pledge
You Can Do
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.
