It’s the final day of the Cafe already! Two weeks has flown by. And at the same time, I think keeping the Cafe to two weeks keeps interest up, volunteers volunteering and allows us to finish out the Cafe as strongly as we began it. The space has been a haven for a few moms needing some a/c and rocking seats for babies. It’s been a great place to come exchange information and ideas (even with some zaney people expressing themselves). And it has served its purpose in the community to raise awareness, offer information, and share the importance of breastfeeding as well as express (um, pun intended) that it is “normalfeeding.”

Stop by on this final day and talk with Nicole who will be there from 1-5 as our IBCLC for “Ask and IBCLC.”

I highlighted our Silent Auction in Saturday’s post, but I wanted to make note again, that bidding will be open until 11:59 mountain time, Thursday night. If you are the highest bidder on an item, please either bring your check written out to Utah Breastfeeding Coalition, to the volunteer reception on Friday the 19th or email Timbra for a mailing address. You will need to pay your bid by Friday August 26th (I’ll wait until Monday the 29th for postmarks) and on Monday the 29th, unpaid bids will go to the next bidder.

I would LOVE to continue updating the facebook page through the end of the year. There will also be some updates for those interested in learning what it takes to be the Chairwoman or on the committee for the Cafe, as I will hold a meeting in October to begin brainstorming for next year’s committee members. So please, stay a “fan” of us on Facebook and pay attention to details that continue to be posted.

This has been a FABULOUS year of celebrations for World Breastfeeding Week and a wonderful year for the Breastfeeding Cafe. Thank you for all who made it possible! And for allowing me to be this year’s chairwoman.

Let’s end with a few favorite quotes. I don’t even know who to give credit to for this one
~Breastfeeding may not be the right choice for every mother, but it is the right choice for every baby.
~Breastfeeding is normal, and ANYONE can be normal (Renee Yeoman. . . I want to be sure to site her here, because I used this quote for the interview with the Examiner and wasn’t able to give her credit. . . did she take it from someone else?)

Signing off for the last time from the 2011 Breastfeeding Cafe in Salt Lake City, UT
