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 website.

This simple act of signing up for the pledge on 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.

Year 30 – A Recap of The Past Twelve Months

Pausing to Smile Over the last twelve months, we’ve passed quite a few milestones as a company. First, we celebrated thirty years of being in business last June. Three decades of growth. 30 years of adapting. It’s been an incredible journey. This year we also hired our 50th employee making us an official mid-sized business. That was only a few months ago, and we’re already close to reaching 60 people. It’s exciting to see the ongoing growth, as well...

Your greatest ally. And worst enemy.

Fear and its omnipresent role during the formation, growth and success of KPS3 cannot be understated. Its fingers touched every higher risk decision, missed opportunity, and created a desire to over-control everything humanly possible. And sometimes inhumanly possible. I have always been in tune with fear. All my life. It’s been a motivator, accelerator, hard driver and protector. I never would have created KPS3 if I hadn’t been afraid of stagnating in the business I had been working (even...

Welcome Students – Kicking off the College Externship Program

Introduction Education isn’t just about academics, but the experiences we have in between. I always believed the reason for college is to land an internship. And that internship would lead to a person’s first job. That’s how my career started anyway. As I worked towards my degree, I met an adjunct professor, Stan Byers. He worked at the time as the creative director at Rose/Glenn (and later started his own agency), and he helped me land my first internship....
