Tiny Tusk Breastfeeding and Infant Support is an organization that provides resources to families at public Razorback events. Tiny Tusks provides a safe space for women to breastfeed in public as well as educate the community about the importance of breastfeeding. Women are allowed to use the space to breastfeed, pump, or use a clean diaper changing station. Once finished, they are asked to complete a survey pertaining to their experience and what they would have done if the resources provided by Tiny Tusks were not available. The stigma surrounding public breastfeeding is discouraging women from breastfeeding exclusively, which is why Tiny Tusks values community education. By decreasing stigma women will be more likely to continue breastfeeding and their child will continue to benefit from the nutrients in breastmilk. In this paper I will be discussing my personal experience working with Tiny Tusks including preparation and implementation of the project.
