2009 World Breastfeeding Week Theme

We are excited to announce the La Leche League USA 2009 World Breastfeeding Week Celebrations theme is Breastfeeding: Prepared for Life.

It was chosen to compliment the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action theme of Breastfeeding: a Vital Emergency Response. Are you ready?

This theme focuses on the importance of nursing in an emergency as well as other aspects of breastfeeding, such as immunities, IQ, fewer illnesses, etc.

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is August 1st - 7th and celebrates the signing of the Innocenti Declaration, produced and adopted in 1990 by participants at the WHO/UNICEF meeting on "Breastfeeding in the 1990s: A Global Initiative on the Protection, Promotion and Support of Breastfeeding." The document lists the benefits of breastfeeding, plus global and governmental goals. World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated in 120 countries on various dates.

Watch for more news later this summer or send us ideas for how you might like to connect to other local breastfeeding moms to celebrate this year!
