Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week
Some of you may or may not know this week is World Breastfeeding Week. It goes from Tuesday, August 1st to Monday August 7th, and 2017 is its 25th year of being celebrated and recognized across the globe. The theme for this year is “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together”.
World Breastfeeding Week started in 1992 and is coordinated by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA. They are a global network of individuals and organizations concerned with the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding worldwide. Over 120 countries across the world get involved in the celebration every year. The goal is to promote exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, which is known to yield tremendous health benefits, provide critical nutrients, protection from deadly diseases, and foster growth and development.
This week is to encourage and support breastfeeding mothers and improve the health of babies around the world. All of us at, Insurance Covered Breast Pumps, are supporters of breastfeeding. It is all about celebrating and promoting breastfeeding mothers all around the world.
