“Sustaining Breastfeeding – Together!”

The theme for 2017’s World Breastfeeding Week is “Sustaining Breastfeeding – Together!”

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is an annual celebration and awareness campaign highlighting and recognizing the benefits of breastfeeding in communities across the globe. As the greatest outreach vehicle for the breastfeeding movement, WBW aims to bring breastfeeding to the forefront of community agendas so everyone can be part of the dialogue! WBW celebrates its 25th year and is officially celebrated from 1-7 Aug by over 170 countries. Countries may also celebrate on later dates in the year (e.g. Oct in Canada). Be part of the campaign and celebration, tell us your stories!
