Breastfeeding Q & A support

Cara Piper will lead a discussion on Q & A about all things breast feeding.

A little bit about Cara:

I was born in Florida and grew up all over as a Navy child. I came back to Florida for college and graduated from UNF with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught until having my daughter and decided to stay home with her. It’s then that I developed my passion for breastfeeding and helping breastfeeding moms. I began my journey which will hopefully lead to sitting for the IBCLC exam next year. I’m currently a CLC and a breastfeeding counselor for breastfeeding USA.

This is a Free talk in the studio space.

The Global Big Latch On at Bay & Bee

big-latch-on-Aug-2nd  

World Breast Feeding Week is being held August 1st-7th,2014.  The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action is celebrating 22 years of promoting breastfeeding and support for mothers.  This is a global effort to normalize and educate people about the benefits of breastfeeding.

Did you know that:

World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Breast milk is the ideal food for newborns and infants. It gives infants all the nutrients they need for healthy development. It is safe and contains antibodies that help protect infants from common childhood illnesses such as diarrhea and pneumonia, the two primary causes of child mortality worldwide.

Breastfeeding also benefits mothers. Exclusive breastfeeding is associated with a natural (though not fail-safe) method of birth control (98% protection in the first six months after birth). It reduces risks of breast and ovarian cancer later in life, helps women return to their pre-pregnancy weight faster, and lowers rates of obesity

According to the latest information by the CDC, In Florida 71.8% of children have been breastfeed.  By 6 months 40.9% are breastfed some, 10.6% are being exclusively exclusive breastfed and by 12 months 20% of children are still breastfed.

TO CELEBRATE World Breast Feeding Week, The Big Latch On is hosting a global count!  It is a community-building event that is aimed to bring women together, spread the word about local support groups and raise money for support organizations.

The Big Latch On involves groups of breastfeeding women coming  together  at registered  locations around  the  world  to all  ‘latch  on’  (breastfeed) their child or children at a set time.  All of the children are latched on for one minute at the set time.  Numbers are added to a global count total to see if we can beat the previous years record.
