It’s been 22 years since the first World Breastfeeding Week.  This year the theme “Breastfeeding: A Wining Goal-for Life” helps to highlight the importance of breastfeeding in the development of a child.  It’s a time to celebrate the progress that has been made toward promoting and supporting breastfeeding as a key intervention in the Millennium Development Goals.

This week also marks nine years since the Indiana Mothers’ Milk Bank opened its doors.  And today those doors opened to a new face:  a new name, a new logo, a new website, a new look, all in hopes of being able to serve more babies, help more moms, and remind ourselves every day why we’re here.  Please join us in celebrating our transition into The Milk Bank, as we look forward to the future in all the communities that we serve.

To those of you who have contributed to our success as the Indiana Mothers' Milk Bank, Thank you! We wouldn't be here without you and hope you will join us as we further our mission.

 

Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
