Happy World Breastfeeding Week! #WBW2020
Happy World Breastfeeding Week! International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) is excited to join World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) and other organizations and individuals the world over in celebrating #WBW2020. The theme of World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) 2020 is Support breastfeeding for a healthier planet! Lactation Matters will feature blog posts and resources throughout the week of 1-7 August to help you make the most of this important week.
Are you ready to celebrate #WBW2020? Check out this must-do list to be sure:
Visit the #WBW2020 website for general information and downloadable promotional materials, including Objectives, Logo, Poster, Action Folder, Relevant Resources, and other forms of multimedia. These materials are available in many languages and contain information on the theme, relevant facts and figures, case studies, and suggested ways to take action.
Share your commitment to breastfeeding advocacy and education. The links between breastfeeding and good nutrition, food security, and poverty reduction may be obvious to breastfeeding advocates, but there is still work to be done to make these connections clear to others. Thinking of organizing your own WBW event? Then Pledge and report your event to be placed on the Pledge Map and receive an e-certificate for each event you organize. Join the online social media movement by participating in WABA interaction, polls, and activities through their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Look for information and action steps throughout WBW at Lactation Matters, where you’ll find articles, images, action steps, and more to help with your successful WBW 2020 observance.
