Day Two!!

Hello and welcome to Day Two of our 6th Annual Breastfeeding Cafe. Have you hopped over to see all of the FABULOUS SILENT AUCTION items we have this year? TWO paintings for silent auction and tons of fun smaller items as well. Your bids help support this year’s Breastfeeding Cafe and the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition, which creates policy and action for breastfeeding in the professional world. SO important for breastfeeding mothers at work and at play! Check out the current bids in the comments section and leave your own bid there too (don’t forget to leave your email address and be checking back to see if you’ve been outbid). The Silent Auction runs through August 15th.

If you don’t see a silent auction item you want, consider one as a gift, or perhaps you’d like to become a member of the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition to become a member TODAY. I want to be sure to thank Tricia Lewandowski for her fabulous work on creating (and keeping up) the Silent Auction page, as well as updating our Breastfeeding Cafe website along the way.

What does the Cafe have in store for you today? Come ask Registered Dietician, Cara Munson, all of your nutrition questions. Does a nursing mother require a special diet while breastfeeding a newborn? A child starting solids? A toddler? An older child? I know you’ve got questions, so bring them at 9:30am and have them answered!

If you’re in the Murray area, we have a La Leche League meeting at noon today! for information and directions

This afternoon we have one of our WIC breastfeeding peer counselors available, starting at 2pm. Are you wondering what WIC provides mothers in our community with regards to breastfeeding support? Are you a professional who might like a bit more information so you know when to refer someone to WIC? Or a volunteer who works closely with breastfeeding mothers, needing more information on other community resources? Are you, or do you know a Spanish speaking mother who could benefit from discussing breastfeeding with a peer counselor, IN Spanish? Then THIS IS THE TIME for you!

As a reminder:
Starting tomorrow through Friday, Mini Portrait Sessions with local photographer, Timbra Wiist of Landslide Photography (that happens to be me, I wear many hats). $20 minimum donation, which includes a mini nursing portrait session along with 5 high resolution, print ready photos on CD. This all goes to La Leche League of Murray and World Breastfeeding Week. CD of additional photos may be purchased later, a portion of this fee will also go directly to La Leche League of Murray. Email landslidephotography{at}hotmail{dot}come for details or to RSVP. Murray Park, Private Home in Sandy and Liberty Park, Wed/Th/Fri respectively.
