“To get some exercise and help calm my crying baby, I strapped her to me in our awesome sling and took off walking!”
“Staying in shape while pregnant showed me how strong I am and inspired me to challenge myself after pregnancy.”
“Running keeps me sane and gives me the strength to be a better mom. And it’s fun!”
“I am armed with my jogging stroller and have vowed to get back into the groove. I just entered a half marathon.”

Our focus: healthy families
Healthy families begin when breastfeeding moms nurse healthy babies.
Healthy families continue when moms and dads have healthy lifestyles that include eating the right foods and getting enough exercise.
This year, Milkmakers is taking healthy families a step further by encouraging all moms and dads to get moving with Moms that Move.
What is Moms that Move?
When we get out and move, we improve our bodies and minds…and that spills over into our family life. Our children are influenced at very young ages. When they see their parents living an active lifestyle, it makes a difference.
As new moms, it is challenging for us to meet the new demands of parenthood. There’s breastfeeding, schedules, sleepless nights, and lots of adjusting.
How do we get moving?
Here’s the plan. Let’s inspire each other to be active now, and every day. Let’s give each other encouragement to get started and answer questions that others may have. For the next few months, Milkmakers will be hosting the following conversation on our Facebook page:
- What are we doing to get moving?
- How are we going to get started?
- Why is it important?
- What questions do we have about becoming active?
- How can we support each other?
Send us your story, your videos, your photos today…
Comments or questions are welcome.
Note: We’ll be publishing your story on our website, facebook page, and in other marketing materials.
