Lactation Station @ the Indiana State Fair

Can you believe it's that time of the year again?  The Indiana State Fair is only days away and IMMB staff is working hard to put the finishing touches on this year's Lactation Station project.  Created in 2006 to meet a crucial need for breastfeeding women, the Lactation Station provides a clean, comfortable place for nursing moms, while also offering refuge from the hot August sun, changing stations, cold water, and a wealth of information about women and infant health issues. Since its inception, the Lactation Station has expanded to THREE stations throughout the fairgrounds.  Over 20,000 moms and families visit one of the stations during the fair's 17-day run; nearly 1,000,000 walk past the IMMB shuttle, which runs 12 hours per day during the fair and is used to promote breastfeeding and infant health.  Those are some serious statistics!

The Lactation Station would not be possible without the partners and sponsors IMMB has developed over the years.  This year, IMMB would like to extend a special thanks toIndiana WIC, which is proudly serving as the presenting sponsor for the 2011 Lactation Station.  In addition, IMMB would like to thank the organizations below for their support of breastfeeding moms and families:

Indianapolis Healthy Start

Day Nursery Association of Indianapolis

Indiana College Choice 529 Direct Savings Plan

La Leche League of Indiana

March of Dimes, Indiana Chapter

Medela

The New Wishard: Eskenazi Health

Indiana Perinatal Network

Please take a minute to visit each of our sponsors' websites.  Without their support, IMMB would not be able to provide the Lactation Station services to our community's moms and babies.  We cannot thank our sponsors enough for their commitment to supporting breastfeeding and infant health.  They truly are helping us share the gift of mothers' milk!

March for Babies - Lactation Station!

March for Babies - Fundraiser Walk

IMMB Program Manger, Dane Nutty, is enjoying his second year on the planning committee for the Indianapolis March for Babies, the largest fundraiser event for the Indiana Chapter of March of Dimes.  The natural collaboration between IMMB and the March of Dimes has developed over the years; after all, both organizations are working diligently to improve the health of our infants and children!

This year, IMMB will be offering a Lactation Station for nursing moms.  You know Indiana weather in April – it may be perfectly sunny, freezing cold, or raining cats and dogs.  Come stop by our Lactation Station RV, generously donated by Mount Comfort RV, for a place to sit down, relax, and nurse your baby.  You can also gather information about milk banking and a variety of infant and women’s health issues as well.

Visit www.marchforbabies.org for more information.  If you would like to help out at the event, please contact Dane at dnutty@immb.org!

Walking For Dreams

Couldn't make it to the 2011 Walking for Dreams?  IMMB had a great turnout, with nearly 50 walkers!

Don't worry - even if you didn't make it, you can still help us fund our mission and help premature and ill infants in need.  For one more week, you can donate to IMMB's team at www.walkingfordreams.org/donate.aspx.  Simply select Dane Nutty, IMMB's Program Manager, from the drop-down list.  Donations will be accepted on the Walking for Dreams site until Sunday, June 5, 2011.
