Breast Feeding Friendly Award Winners 2010

The 2010 World Breastfeeding Week Kickoff Celebration happened right here in our own backyard. On August 1st, Weaver Street Market and CyCo hosted the event. Vendors were present, information about breastfeeding was distributed, and awards were, well, awarded!

Awards were presented to various local businesses throughout the Triangle for their support of, encouragement of, and education about breastfeeding. These places did this by creating a breastfeeding-friendly environment for their employees and/or through creating an atmosphere where patrons could feel free to breastfeed without judgment and with support.

Since all of these businesses are recognized as going above and beyond for breastfeeding moms, we here at MinCHill thought it was worth sharing the list. Go to these places, thank them, and feel free to nurse while there.
