"Make Penang Breastfeeding Friendly" Campaign on 9 Oct 2011
I know i am LATE, but better than NONE, right?
Ok, this was a breastfeeding event organise by Penang Mother-to-Mother Peer Support (MMPS) in celebrating of World Breastfeeding Week 2011. During the event also MMPS run together 1 Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding too.
I am one of the volunteer committee.
Event was on Sunday, 9th October 2011, 3:15pm – 5:00pm at Straits Quay (Jalan Seri Tanjung Pinang, Tanjung Tokong, 10470 Penang). Free entrance, free refreshment, free face painting, and many exciting games and prizes to be won.
During the campaign, MMPS also launching “1 Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding” event at 4pm. Total we had: 800 mothers and babies from all over Malaysia: 534 mothers and babies from 46 hospitals and 266 mothers and babies from everywhere. Breastfed together on 9th Oct at 4pm! Bravo to the supporter!
Knew what, YB Puan Betty Chew (President of Penang Pertubuhan Wanita Mutiara and wife of Chief Minister YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng) and Dato' Anwar Fazal (Chairperson Emeritus WABA) were there to support too!
Not only me so excited during the whole event, my 3 elder kids also enjoyed themselves very much. Jing and Yang having great time on hand and face painting, asking balloon from the clown, ate and drinks as they want. Mann was too busy playing at toys corner. Tanz was with daddy while mummy busy entertaining the crowd.
I am very prouded to myself during the “1 Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding” event. By that time, back carried Mann in my manduca SSC and front breastfed Tanz. Woo...
BTW, graped the opportunity to go to Charlie Brown Restaurant too. Here was the bill for 2 adults and 3 kids! Told hubby that no more next time liao la, actually the price for the food is reasonable but for the drinks was too expensive! Mann kept saying:"mummy, see this!" "mummy, see that!" All are Charlie Brown cartoon characters up to ceiling, no wonder she was so excited! Haha...
The event end at 530 pm, after clean up we left at 6pm. All my kids slept till we get home! Wo... Mummy also super tired!
Oh, ya, even Amelia the writer for The Law IBFAN was there to support.
