Tiger Babies Nursing Station
In 2015, the Auburn School of Nursing established the Tiger Babies Breastfeeding Support Tent as a way of promoting a clean, comfortable and private area for mothers to nurse and pump prior to football games. In just two years, we have assisted approximately 575 mothers and their babies. We are the only service of this kind offered at any SEC campus on game day.
Our goal is to raise $17,000 for a new station to support the Tiger Babies Program. Currently, while we enjoy being able to host Tiger Babies at our tent, several of the healthcare related items are being damaged from week to week during transport, set up, and breakdown. With a portable station, we could minimize the damages to our equipment and maximize our time so that we can focus on helping the mothers and babies looking to gain access to our services.
By providing access to mothers and their children, we are not only encouraging better health for these babies, we are also supporting many of our Auburn Family members by allowing them a chance to attend games, even with newborns. We want all members of the Auburn Family to be able to attend the games and continue to cheer on their Tigers as they raise future generations of Auburn fans! Join Auburn Nursing and the Auburn Family in providing better support for our nursing mothers and their “tiger babies.”
