Quintessence Foundation Sponsors Breastfeeding Challenge

In earlier times, nursing mothers in Canada had to either leave or cover up in malls and restaurants, but nowadays, the trend has changed and society doesn’t feel that awkward. Yet in many countries, breastfeeding out in the community is not accepted.

According to La Leche League Chilliwack, people should support nursing mothers, who want to breastfeed their babies anytime and anywhere.

Naturopathic doctor, Joanne Menard breastfed her child in restaurants, planes, ferries, and even on local hiking trails. She said that she had no problem while nursing her baby in Chilliwack. She also said that the general public should be made aware of the fact that breastfeeding an older baby is healthy and normal.

In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), mothers should nurse their babies until at least two years of age, but many people are not aware of it. Breast milk is the best source of nutrition for the infants. It contains all the necessary nutrients that are required for a baby.

The Quintessence Foundation will sponsor the Breastfeeding Challenge, in which mothers from Canada and the United States will compete to set the record for the maximum number of babies being breastfed at one time.

The event will start at 10:30 a. m. and will run till twelve noon at the Mission Health Unit, 32618 Logan Ave.
