It’s World Breastfeeding Week!
World Breastfeeding Week, Aug. 1-7, encourages families, communities and the world to support breastfeeding to improve the health of mothers and babies. The week focuses on two themes, Colorado’s “Breastfeeding: A Key to a Healthy Future,” and the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action’s “Breastfeeding: A Key to Sustainable Development.” Both themes highlight the importance of breastfeeding in ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity. To put it succinctly: breastfeeding provides a healthy, viable, non-polluting, nonresource-intensive, sustainable and natural source of nutrition and sustenance. Get involved!
