The Breastfeeding Cafe, held in downtown Salt Lake City, is in her SEVENTH year. With a nod to World Breastfeeding Week, this year’s theme is “Breastfeeding Time Machine: Age Old Wisdom to Feed the Future” and we celebrate 10 years of the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy for infant & young child feeding
The Breastfeeding Cafe is held during the first two weeks of August in the atrium of the Main Public Library (210 East 400 South) in the SHARE space. An online blog carnival kicks off our event, in the last two weeks of July, followed by our living Cafe in the library which will take place August 1-14. Our living Cafe coincides with World Breastfeeding Week in the US. The Cafe is open daily at 10am and Sundays 1-5. This is a place for nursing mothers to sit for a while, for community members who have questions, and a place for open conversation that celebrates breastfeeding. Daily classes include those held by dietitians, medical professionals, IBCLCs and by other professionals who seek to support and celebrate breastfeeding. All classes and events are designed to enhance the parent/child relationship . Check out events calendar & description of classes. Please join us! There is something for everyone in the family, and everyone in the community….. because breastfeeding touches us all.
