Today is October 7, 2023, the last day of Canadian Breastfeeding Week for 2023.
In Canada, just over 91% of mothers initiate breastfeeding but 1 in 7 stop before baby reaches one month of age. By working together, we can help families that initiate breastfeeding overcome any challenges that prevent them from meeting their breastfeeding goals!
On Thursday, October 5, 2023, we gathered at Kelso Conservation Area for our annual Canadian Breastfeeding Week Nature Hike. A wonderful time was had by all, the weather cooperated, and a lucky few won some wonderful door prizes!
