Time Period: Ongoing.
For: all breastfeeding advocates (on our Media Committee or not). We need your help!
Would you like to see more breastfeeding news on television, on the radio, and in the local newspapers? The Chicago Area Breastfeeding Coalition is working to develop relationships with media contacts, respond to breastfeeding stories, and provide press releases on timely breastfeeding issues.
September 2, 2008 Chicago Tribune Metro section has an article, "Hospitals send formula home with baby while encouraging mother to breast-feed", http://tinyurl.com/65w9y9 and they contacted CABC for information, contacts and quotes. Exciting!
