I wanted to share with you an event going on in Austin this weekend for those of you who are in the area.
Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge & Family Fun Fest
10am – noon; latch on is at 11am sharp
4001 N. Lamar Blvd.
Austin, TX 78756
Co-hosted by Central Texas Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition & Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin
Quintessence is a global breastfeeding challenge similar to The Big Latch On, where we are trying to have the most babies latched on at 11am in a geographical area.
There’s a short description below, but in addition to the musical entertainment it mentions, we’ll have professional photographers Suzanne Reiss Photography & GA-Images by Gloria Sanchez taking pictures for us.
There will be a fire truck at the beginning of the event (about the first 45 minutes – assuming they aren’t called away), & vendor booths with groups/retailers/service providers like The Natural Baby Company- Austin TX, Central Texas Doula Association, Central Texas Midwives, Texans for Midwifery, Get Babied, & Breastfeeding Moms of Austin, & Family Handwerks. There will be giveaways, including a breastpump for the winner of our Breastfeeding Trivia Tournament, courtesy of The Natural Baby Co.
Join Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin and the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition for the Annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge and Family Fun Fest on Saturday, October 5th from 10AM to noon at the North Austin Central Market (4001 North Lamar Blvd). This FREE event will feature Staci Gray, Rockaroni & Cheese and many more fun family activities. Come out and help break Austin’s record for the most breastfeeding moms. Latch On time for the breastfeeding challenge will be promptly at 11AM, registration begins at 10AM and music will be rockin’ throughout the event.
