World Breastfeeding Week (August 1 - 7)
began in 1992 by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), a global network of individuals and organizations, including the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO). In 2011 the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) officially declared that August as the National Breastfeeding Month. The 2023 National Breastfeeding Month theme is Enabling Breastfeeding: Making a difference for working parents. Maryland celebrates this month by celebrating, educating and raising awareness about breastfeeding. Check out the Maryland Governor's Proclamation!
