The La Leche League of Canada is a group that aims to promote and support breastfeeding. We all know mother’s milk is the superior infant food and breastfeeding is an essential part of developing the bond between mother and baby.
A local Le Leche League group recently received funding through the Thrive! Community Breastfeeding Project to purchase books and dvds on breastfeeding which are now available for the public to borrow at public libraries across Nova Scotia. It’s partnerships like this that make public libraries an essential way to promote health literacy.
To celebrate this new collection of breastfeeding resources, there will be a celebration at the Windsor Regional Library on Saturday, October 4th from 10-12. Books purchased through the grant will be on display, there will be a special Babies & Books Storytime, and there will be some treats too! So plan to stop by the Windsor Library on the morning of October 4th to show that you support breastfeeding.
