The Arizona Breastfeeding Bag Project hands out true breastfeeding bags to mothers who want to breastfeed.
According to one of the group’s organiziers, “This is an alternative to the formula bags that many moms will recieve at the doctors offices and at the hospital. It has been shown that when a mom has the support and resources that she needs she will continue to breastfeed.”
These bags are available through midwives offices and upon request. The bag contains a few sample items such as nipple cream, nursing pads, milk storage bag, and lactation tea. It also contains on where to turn for information, including support groups.

Are you a vendor looking for an event to promote your product?
Vendors will pay a fee for their spot which goes directly toward the cost of the bag project. There is no “percentage” taken from your sales, that is for you to keep. According to the Arizona Breastfeeding Bag Project says, “I guess this is kind of like a community service project to help mom businesses. During this time as will we will be handing out breastfeeding bags to anyone who wants them.” Join the event above on facebook and message an administrator or email them at AZBFBP@gmail.com
