Breastfeeding mothers everywhere should be excited for the month of August. First the there is the week between the first and the seventh. It’s World Breastfeeding Week. The fun doesn’t stop there either. The whole rest of the month is Breastfeeding Awareness Month.
World Breastfeeding Week
All you need to do to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week is log on to WorldBreastfeedingWeek.org. There are downloads and contests. There is even a pledge that you can take as a breastfeeding mother. They list their objectives quite clearly, and they really aren’t anything anyone could object to. My particular favorite is getting young people of both genders interested in breastfeeding and how it is still relevant in our changing world today. With the easy access to formula and our fast pace society here in the United States it’s easy for us to want to sweep breastfeeding under the rug. This week is to help keep that from happening. Downloads consist of action folders, calendars, desktops, and even promotion flyers. Plus the materials come in a variety of languages.
Breastfeeding Awareness Month
As I said before the fun doesn’t stop on the seventh of August, because the nation can still celebrate August as Breastfeeding Awareness Month. There will be a social media six word campaign on Facebook from the first to the third. Just post a six word story of what breastfeeding means to you. Just log on to USBreastfeeding.org to learn more about that. WomensHealth.gov is another great site that lays out the research and findings about the effect breastfeeding has on society. The goals that they hope to accomplish including recasting breastfeeding benefits to have greater consequences and promoting the message to breastfeed exclusively for the first six months. Campaign materials such as ads, including television and radio spots.
