With mothers being bombarded with messages to cover up and hide when breastfeeding their children, the ABC has created two cards with encouraging and empowering messages for you to print and hand out to the moms you see feeding their little ones in public—or anywhere for that matter!
The Alberta Breastfeeding Committee strives to promote, protect and supportbreastfeeding at all times and in many varied ways.
Download and print these cards for free using Avery white 08371 (Business stock card). To capture both messages, double sided is best.
When you see a mother feeding her baby please do give her a card. Make her day!
