Breastfeeding Friendly Awards
August 1 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pmFree
The Twin Tiers Breastfeeding Network (TTBN) will be honoring recipients of the 14th annual Breastfeeding Friendly Awards Thursday, August 1st at noon at Wisner Park.
These awards recognize businesses, individuals, and organizations for their valuable support of breastfeeding mothers. Awardees have supported moms in a number of ways including providing encouragement and support, making it easy for them to continue nursing their infants by maintaining policies that accommodate breastfeeding moms, offering flexible schedules and providing private spaces for feeding and pumping milk.
The Twin Tiers Breastfeeding Network (TTBN) strives to increase breastfeeding rates throughout Chemung County. Breastfeeding is the healthiest start for babies and it’s good for moms too. TTBN has several activities promoting and raising awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding including the Breastfeeding Friendly Awards, a Community Baby Shower, and ongoing monthly Baby Bistros to support breastfeeding moms and their families.
