World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year from 1 to 7 August all over the globe to encourage breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world.
It's been great to see so much going on all over social media to support WBW19. Just in case you wanted a bit more information we've covered it in this month's blog post.
"Empower Parents. Enable Breastfeeding."
The theme for 2019 World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is - Empower Parents. Enable Breastfeeding. ILCA is partnering with organizations around the globe - including United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO), International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN), La Leche League International (LLLI), The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM), Wellstart International, the Global Goals, and the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) - to promote the role that breastfeeding plays in valuing our wellbeing.
Breastfeeding is a universal solution that levels the playing field, giving everyone a fair start in life.
It improves the health, wellbeing and survival of women and children around the world.
