Our newsletter, The Milk Mob Express, showcases articles on a broad range of contemporary breastfeeding issues and updates on our program events and activities. We select articles that are both newsworthy and relevant to breastfeeding supporters working in a variety of settings. In addition, we share interviews we’ve conducted with Office Breastfeeding Champions as well as stories from breastfeeding families.
In our first issue of the newsletter we introduce The Milk Mob, discuss various research articles, and provide handouts about the benefits of breastfeeding and breastfeeding and returning to work or school.
