Calling all creative Babes – here’s a chance for you to make a difference, create awareness, and help support Team Best For Babes by designing the racing shirt for the new Team Operation Lactation Freedom, started by Purple Heart recipient Keyana Somerset! The winning designer will receive a $100 Visa gift card from Best for Babes.
Team Best for Babes is the first run/walk program for the breastfeeding cause. It’s a grab-n-go opportunity — anyone, anywhere, in whatever sport, can join or start a team and Race to Beat the Breastfeeding Booby Traps(R) and Put Prevention First!
Keyana Somerset is an active duty mom of an 8 week-old who is on a mission to help us Beat the Booby Traps™ and let breastfeeding freedom ring for moms and babies. You can read more about Keyana’s awesome journey as a breastfeeding soldier at Breastfeeding in Combat Boots, which has partnered with Best for Babes to support Team BFB and this awesome military team!
Here’s what Keyana is fighting for:
“We are running to support moms everywhere!!!! Team Operation Lactation Freedom runs to bring awareness of and support for breastfeeding especially for women in uniform and women from low income backgrounds. Let freedom ring for moms and babies – freedom to make an informed feeding decision, freedom to carry that out without being bullied or booby-trapped, freedom to get the support they deserve to do something so instinctive, healthy and good for everyone!”
Best for Babes will have more from Keyana about how her battle with the Breastfeeding Booby Traps with Baby #1 became her call to action next week– so check back with us!
