Breastfeeding USA is honored to stand with — and learn from — the strong women leading Black Breastfeeding Week. (#BBW15) Supporting Black Breastfeeding Week means we support a cultural shift in the African American community to view breastfeeding as the cultural norm. We invite you to learn more about the culture surrounding black breastfeeding. The theme, “Lift Every Baby” captures the hope and determination behind breastfeeding as a way to nurture the next generation. Get involved in Black Breastfeeding Week activities in your area!
Breastfeeding and Work. Let's Make it Work! This theme conveys a powerful message, calling us to global action to support women in their efforts to breastfeed while contributing to the economic well-being of their families. "Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed." World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA)
