From 1-7 August 2011, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), and breastfeeding advocates in more than 170 countries worldwide will be celebrating World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) for the 19th year with the theme “Talk to Me! Breastfeeding – a 3D Experience”.
As global exclusive breastfeeding rates continue to rise, we may wonder – why talk about breastfeeding? Isn’t it a normal, physiological process? The reality is that most talk is confined within the health care and related spheres. WABA’s call to action is for celebrants to reach beyond these borders, in new ways, and include traditionally un-involved parties, such as young people, to join in WBW.
