Babies as young as eight-weeks-old latched on to end stigmas attached to breastfeeding in public.
The fifteenth annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge took place at Lawson Heights mall in Saskatoon on Saturday.
Over two dozen mothers and babies turned out to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
“The idea is to have all the babies and children latch at the same time and create a wave of breastfeeding across the world,” Quincy Lambe of Saskatoon’s Breastfeeding Matters said.
Ashley Gyoerick and three-month-old son Elliot came out to show it’s okay for mothers to feed their children in public.
“It can be a struggle especially when some babies don’t like eating under their sheet or their curtain.
The Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge started in the Canadian province of British Columbia back in 20001 with over 800 babies and mothers. By 2016 there were over 4,000 mothers in six countries taking part.
