World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated internationally. Each year a theme highlights a specific theme and allows for an international show of support as moms celebrate in various activities.

In Canada, the Quintessence Foundation organizes a yearly breastfeeding challenge. Many health units share their celebration ideas through the BFI in CHS Workgroup meetings.

International, The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) a global network of individuals and organisations concerned with the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding worldwide based on the Innocenti Declaration, the Ten Links for Nurturing the Future and the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding, provides the theme, ideas and other resources for World Breastfeeding Week.
