This Sunday, August 5th, Dr. Bohn will be attending Boobie-Palooza at the Ebell on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week. Celebrities such as Ali Landry, James and Kimberly Van Der Beek, and Heather Tom will join together with the public in Los Angeles for this special event that is geared toward shining light on the benefits of breastfeeding.

Several of the celebrity participants have posed for an ad campaign in t-shirts boasting quirky, funny, and lighthearted sayings, like “Dessert” and “Milk Bar.”

The event will feature several guest speakers — including author Dr. Harvey Karp, Dr. Stuart Fischbein, MD, and Ricki Lake — in addition to learning about the tools and support needed for breastfeeding success.

The panel discussion is set to start at 12:30 and go for 30 minutes plus 10 to 15 minutes afterwards for a question and answer session.  It will be broadcast live on Ustream.

Requests for questions have been collected from the registered attendees and topics so far include:

  • Cord Blood Banking
  • Delayed Cord Clamping
  • Nutrition
  • Homebirth vs Hospital Birth
  • VBAC
  • Herpes
  • Body Changes

The event was also written up by People Magazine this week.
