What is The Breastfeeding Project?

The Breastfeeding Project is a non-profit organization that provides free breastfeeding education and support resources to expectant and breastfeeding mothers and families. Our current primary outreach activity is the distribution of Breastfeeding Bags to expectant mothers through healthcare providers and community outreach events. For more information visit:

What if I’m not breastfeeding?

Please attend even if you are not breastfeeding. We need witnesses for the official latch on count, and your participation helps support and normalize breastfeeding. Many of our vendors will have activities and products that are not related to breastfeeding, so there will be plenty of entertainment for you to enjoy.
