World Breastfeeding Week

Please join us on August 10, 2019, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Peoria Riverplex to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2019! 

The #WBW2019 slogan “Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding” was chosen to be inclusive of all types of parents in today’s world. Focusing on supporting both parents to be empowered is vital to realize their breastfeeding goals.

The Central Illinois Breastfeeding Task Force is hosting a drop-in style open gym for young children to play and explore with foam mats, small bikes and cars. Another portion of the gym will be available for older children. Light snacks and drinks will be provided. Come and meet your local resources, talk with lactation experts, and be entered to win door prizes
