Speak up about the bright spots and gaps in breastfeeding support in Kansas. Let’s make sure the needs of breastfeeding families are heard and included in the new statewide strategic plan for early childhood that is being developed. Here’s how:
- Tell your personal breastfeeding story (current or in the past) here – http://bit.ly/KBC_OurTomorrows
- Share your experience with breastfeeding families in your community here http://kschildrenscabinet.org/share/.
Only 20+ breastfeeding stories have been collected so far. Please add your voice to this process to help shape the future of support for families in Kansas. Consider using the KBC’s Talking Points to help get your started. This should take only 10-15 minutes of your time. And please feel free to forward these links to others!
Here’s one example of a story:
We tried for weeks to breastfeed our first son and finally quit because he wasn’t gaining enough weight. People gave me lots of advice but none of it seemed to work. Things were better with our second baby and we got lots of support from the hospital and WIC staff. Just having someone to call who knows about breastfeeding made all the difference!
Thank you in advance for sharing your breastfeeding story to help shape the future of support for families in Kansas. And please share his opportunity with others!
