Event Description

Join us to celebrate breastfeeding in a fun “competition” where every child “wins” because they are breastfed!!
What: Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge 2008 This fun event is a challenge for which geographic area ( province, state or territory) has the most breastfeeding babies, as a percentage of the birthrate, “latched on.” at 11am local time.

When: October 3rd*

Why: to celebrate breastfeeding and demonstrate promotion, protection and support for breastfeeding women and their families. It’s a chance for education and peer support done in a fun social way.

Location: TBD

"Latch on": Meet at 10:30am; Latch on at 11am local time.

Background: In 2001 when this event started, there were 856 babies at 26 sites in British Columbia, Canada. Last year there were over 7632 babies at over 316 sites across the United States, Canada and internationally. This year we would love to see that number increase dramatically. Do your part, join us - organize a site - big or small! Every breastfeeding baby counts in the final count.

Please visit for more locations around the globe!
