Supporting Breastfeeding in Nevada – Here, There, Everywhere

We have grown by four feet!

This year, we have been lucky enough to welcome two adorable babies to the extended KPS3 family. In January, Alex welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Lihie and in February, Katie welcomed handsome little Wells. From long nights and endless diapers to the first smiles and giggles, there are so many amazing adventures ahead for these two families. And when these new mothers come back to work, we are ready to fully support them and their needs if they wish to continue to breastfeed. KPS3 is proud to be a participating business in the Nevada’s “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” pledge – for the new moms on our team and all breastfeeding moms in Nevada.

Did you know that in Nevada it is legal to breastfeed in any public or private location? That is correct – Nevada is a breastfeeding friendly state. By law, no matter where and no matter when, a woman may breastfeed her baby anytime she needs to. To help spread the word, and educate people and businesses throughout Nevada, KPS3, the Division of Public and Behavioral Health and the Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition partnered together for the “Here – There – Everywhere” campaign.

Launched statewide, the campaign aimed to create and spread awareness that Nevada is a breastfeeding friendly state. In addition, the campaign helped to encourage businesses to sign up for and participate in the Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition’s “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” pledge. By signing up, businesses are able to show their support for breastfeeding mothers. After taking the pledge, businesses are provided with a “Breastfeeding Welcomed Here” sticker and recognized on the NevadaBreastfeeds.org website.

This simple act of signing up for the pledge on NevadaBreastfeeds.org and displaying the sticker is an easy way to show support for breastfeeding mothers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), women are the fastest-growing segment of the workforce, and nearly 70 percent of mothers with children under three years old work full time. Working outside the home has been found to drastically decrease the length of time a woman breastfeeds. With such a large portion of the workplace consisting of women and mothers, it is crucial to establish strong support for breastfeeding in the workplace. Supporting breastfeeding at work lengthens the time that women breastfeed, which is both beneficial for baby and for mom.

With a long list of reasons why breastfeeding is beneficial for mom and baby, it is critical to support new moms as they return to work. Providing a safe, educated and supportive atmosphere can make all the difference for mothers transitioning back into their jobs. Breastfeeding is hard work and the more support a mother receives, the longer she may continue to breastfeed.

Join us and the other businesses who have already taken the pledge to support Nevada’s moms in keeping their babies happy and healthy. Visit NevadaBreastfeeds.org and take the pledge.

Brand and Marketing Research: Getting Started

I am a firm believer in research first for almost everything in life — from planning a trip to starting a home project. Of course, nowhere is this more true than in my professional life. At KPS3 we start every project with some type of research. Research is especially important before undertaking a large marketing project, such as a rebrand, advertising campaign, or a new website. Clients often come to us knowing they should do some research but are...
