World Breastfeeding Week


Born during World Breastfeeding Week 2008, and still loving his momma milk.
❤ Momma: Danelle

It's that time again! The week we get to all-out celebrate the milky goodness that is breastfeeding and human milk. This year's celebration extends from August 1-7 and around the globe mothers, babies, children, and those who support the normal feeding of human young are involved in a wide variety of lactatifabulous actives.

World Breastfeeding Week began in 1991 and has since "paved the way for hundreds of countries to join together and protect, promote, and support breastfeeding in their individual communities."

Visit the World Breastfeeding Week homepage for a variety of related materials and information.

As is tradition on Facebook, men and women change their profile photos during this week each year to raise awareness and celebrate breastfeeding. If you do not have a photo to use,  you are invited to use any of the logo designs at the bottom of this page (all are shirts/onesies from Made By Momma) as your profile photo. To learn more about the International Breastfeeding Symbol, or the alternative twists on the symbol that others have created, see this article.

NIP card altered for Facebook by Lindsey Ward 
in honor of all the mothers who have had photos removed and accounts deleted simply because of their baby-feeding photos. 

Because we know that Facebook has become infamous for removing mothers' images of the normal feeding of their babies, we will also be displaying all those shared during the course of this week here. These are each property of the person who submitted the photo for exclusive use at peaceful parenting, and cannot be used without explicit permission of the owner. You may send or write to us at DrMomma.org@gmail.com or post on the peaceful parenting Facebook wall and your image will be added.
