If you follow along with MaeWares on Facebook, you have probably noticed a few updates about an event called The Big Latch On: Cartersville.
Well this year, I’ve joined Jacky over at Mummies Nummies as a vendor for The Big Latch On. Once the location is announced I will make sure to let you know! Try to stop by, I would love to see you and there will be so many goodies.
This is a wonderful way to bring awareness to breastfeeding during the World Breastfeeding Week Aug. 1-7! Another plus to this event is being able to connect with other breastfeeding moms and be surrounded by support & community.
In my experience with breastfeeding my almost-one-year-old, support goes A-L-O-N-G way. Having people around me who not only support the idea of breastfeeding — especially extended breastfeeding — but who daily provide and assist in the means for me to continue, has been invaluable. The constant reminders when I am feeling “out-touched” that “this is something I strongly believe in for my son” keeps me going. So getting to meet and interact with many other moms who push through and strive to do what they believe is best for their baby could not be a greater pleasure and joy for me.
