Picture Up & Be Counted!
As breastfeeding advocates, we constantly discuss the benefits of breastfeeding for babies, and eventually these babies grow up. They become health professionals, teachers, lawyers, advocates, athletes, scientists, writers, and more!
Thanks to research and statistics, we have a good idea for the percentage of breastfed babies per year, and now it is time to put faces to numbers. This is a great opportunity to show support for breastfeeding, even for those that do not have children.
Getting involved is easy! If you or someone you know has a smartphone with any social media apps (Google+, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest), simply take a picture of yourself with the smartphone and include #IWasABreastfedBaby and/or #BlkBFing as the caption, then post!
If your phone does not have these capabilities, do not worry, you can still post pictures and use hashtags on your computer.
