Event description
Join us on Saturday, October 5th to help promote and celebrate breastfeeding in Chilliwack during Canada's World Breastfeeding Week!

About this Event

Every year, on the fortieth Saturday of the year at 11:00 am, mothers and children unite at different sites around the world to compete in the annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge to set a record for the most children breastfeeding at one time. The Challenge strives to increase public awareness of the normality of breastfeeding, the benefits to mother, child and community and the ways in which women need support to achieve the recommended duration for breastfeeding.

Chilliwack placed #1 in the world in the 2018 Breastfeeding Challenge with 125 babies nursing simultaneously on Sat. Sept 29th!! This is an amazing achievement and we are proud that our community is so supportive about the health and wellness of our children. We are hoping to get 200 babies and children latched on for this year's challenge!

The first 200 people to register will receive an awesome bag with some really cool breastfeeding oriented swag!

2019 will be the 19th annual Chilliwack Breastfeeding Challenge!
