We’re sorry for the late notice on this, but our friends at Coney Island Hospital (2501 Ocean Parkway) are putting on a week-long celebration of breastfeeding, beginning this morning and lasting until Monday.

The events are listed on the flier above. There will be giveaways and raffles, as well as information and registration for the WIC program. Toys ‘R’ Us will provide additional breastfeeding information, and the hospital will be doing tours of the labor and delivery unit as well as the post-partum unit.
