Families are invited to come learn more about breastfeeding and the resources available to them as they navigate their parenting journeys. The day will feature snacks, activities, vendors, raffles and a silent auction.
Local vendors will be present with product samples and information about services they provide. Parking will be available on the street and in nearby parking garages.

“We hope families in Savannah and the surrounding areas will join us to learn more about the benefits of breastfeeding for mothers, babies and the environment. Human milk is the gold standard for providing infants with protective nutrients,” said Wendy Cohen, one of five volunteer Leaders with La Leche League of Savannah.
