Mark Your Calendars: August 15 is Public Display of Breastfeeding Day! [UPDATED]
Join The Bump and Boppy boob-olution!
Breastfeeding Awareness Month here! On August 15th, moms everywhere will breastfeed in public to celebrate in our second annual Public Display of Breastfeeding (PDB) Day. Why make a big deal out of breastfeeding in public? To empower moms and show the world that if a mom chooses to breastfeed, it’s her right to feed her baby whenever and wherever she needs to. The more people who see moms nursing in public, the less of a big deal it’ll be – and that’s the goal.
You can show your support of breastfeeding by doing your own PDB on August 15. Visit www.thebump.com/pdb to take the pledge and tweet #PDB to us @thebump @BoppyCompany. Tell us where you’re feeding baby and enter to win a huge gift bag filled with breastfeeding essentials.
