Team Babe's ON Your Back WGYBB
WE NEED BABYWEARING MAMAS TO JOIN THE FIRST NATIONWIDE FITNESS CHALLENGE TO URGE AMERICA TO BACK BREASTFEEDING AND SWEAT FOR THE LOVE OF MOMS AND BABIES.
Let's show the world that babywearing mamas are a force to be reckoned with. We don't merely exercise...we do it with babies on our backs...or fronts...or both! We're donning our coolest summer wraps and carriers and sweating for the love of moms and babies WITH our babies. So, choose your fitness challenge and join the team!! See below for more information.
Every year, Americans donate billions to find cures for diseases and cross the finish line first, while breastfeeding—one of the single most important preventative measures against infections, viruses and life-threatening illnesses for both babies and mother— remains grossly underappreciated and lags last in the race for funding. As a result, millions of moms suffer, struggle and are unable to meet their personal breastfeeding goals due to poor information, overwhelming barriers to breastfeeding, and a persistent lack of infrastructure. The toll on our nation’s health, economy and planet is staggering. Here's your chance to be a pioneer in adding breastfeeding to the "fitness for a cause" highway to help make lasting culture change happen for moms and babies and improve our collective health!
