World Breastfeeding Week 2018!
August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The aim is to promote community and professional support for new mothers. The month kicks off with World Breastfeeding Week, August 1st-7th.
The slogan for this year's World Breastfeeding Week is Foundation of Life.
From the WBW website:
In a world filled with inequality, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health for babies and mother.
With no additional burden on household income, breastfeeding is a low-income way of feeding babies and contributes to poverty reduction.
Here at home, World Breastfeeding Week brings the community together and offers breastfeeding mothers support and camaraderie. Find a Big Latch On event in your area to celebrate this week with other breastfeeding mamas!
