Brestfeeding Tent at the Farmer's Market

 The Breastfeeding Initiative of Ulster County (BIUC) in New York had a breastfeeding tent every week at the farmer's market. With chairs and a baby changing table women felt supported. We had poster boards and markers and asked people to share their breastfeeding experiences. Here are some of the shares.

I make milk. What's your super power. 16 mos. n still going strong.

Hi! Brestfed my son for 2 years, he weaned himself, my daughter for 4 years. She weaned herself. The best time of our lives. Reggi

Breastfeeding promotes good maternal and child health and it's a wonderful bond between mother and child.

18 mos. and 17 mos. YES!

I nursed y son for three years, he is 40 now. He is very successful and very healthy! Never been really sick in his life. None of my friends breastfed but I persisted and loved it! It was the best part of having a baby. Susan Friedman
