World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week Celebrations in Canada

In Canada, we celebrate World Breastfeeding Week from October 1st to 7th, but many communities will have Saturday celebrations on September 30th. For 2018, the theme as chosen by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is:

Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life

See details: http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/

We hope you will participate in events in your community as well as

  • share your story with us for future publication by sending it to adc@lllc.ca
  • become a LLLC Friend here
  • make a donation in support of breastfeeding here

To encourage, promote and provide mother-to-mother breastfeeding support and educational opportunities as an important contribution to the health of children, families and society. Mothering through breastfeeding is the most natural and effective way of understanding and satisfying the needs of the baby.
