baby friendly canadian campaign

Check out these great posters from Baby Friendly NewFoundland and Labrador (Canada)!

The goal of this organization is to support parents in breastfeeding and provide information and resources.

Why the posters exist, according to Baby Friendly:

You’ll see plenty of strange things….breastfeeding isn’t one of them is a fun, humorous campaign designed to promote public acceptance of breastfeeding. The posters touch on the positive health benefits of breastfeeding, but focus more on minimizing the stigma about breastfeeding in public. It’s all about building confidence in women to breastfeed! Through this public awareness campaign we hope to encourage the families of pregnant women and the communities in which they live to support new mothers and give them the confidence they need to breastfeed anytime, anywhere.

Yes! We see so many strange things every day and barely give them a second look. A woman feeding her child in the manner that she was made to shouldn't be one of those strange things!

Go to the website to print out a full version of the posters. 

Hang them where ever you can- stores, your workplace, your home- anywhere that you and others can see them and help build confidence to breastfeed in public.

By the way, how cool is Canada? This is the second breastfeeding campaign that I have posted from there.
