AABN Selected By 100 Women Who Care

On August 11, 2016 the Milwaukee Chapter of 100 Women Who Care selected the African American Breastfeeding Network (AABN) as its funding agency.  “We are thrilled and appreciative to have the support of this great organization.  Funds will be put to use to make an immediate impact to help mothers reach their breastfeeding goals,” Blackwell said.   In total AABN received $8,875 dollars! This money will be put to great use in fulfilling AABN’s mission of promoting breastfeeding as the natural and the best way to provide optimal nourishment to babies and young children.

2016 Most Wished For

 

"Every parent and caregiver knows from first hand experience that babies calm down when they are picked up, gently rocked, and carried around the room. New research published in the journal Current Biology on April 18, 2013 shows that this is a universal phenomenon. Infants experience an automatic calming reaction when they are being carried, whether they are mouse pups or human babies." Babies are frequent visors at our AABN office, the addition of this rocking chair will allow a comfortable space for moms to nurse as well as the added benefit of being used to calm baby.
