What a success! Our sorting and stuffing playdates resulted in 500 free gift bags to hand out. In the bags were a BLISS postcard; Breast Is Best postcard; Breast Is Best magnets and stickers; LaLecheLeague brochure, magnet, and a list of meeting dates and locations; a Breastfeeding Common Myths handout, a BLISS brochure, a Dr. Suess for Nursing Moms poem, and some other sponser business cards and flyers. We had a draw for some wonderful prizes donated from friends, sold breastfeeding onesies made by Sarah, breastfeeding bracelets, as well as a nursing corner, with rocking chair and breastfeeding pillow. I will post some pictures soon.
About 400 of the breastfeeding bags were handed out, with enough left over for the Welcome Wagon baby shower next month. Moms stopped by to ask questions, admire the breastfeeding tshirts, and comment on the large "Edmonton's Beautiful Breastfed Babies" display.
The 2 days went quickly, and I met alot of new people, and chatted with lots of friends. All in all, it was a great weekend!
