I can't believe it, when this all started I was only 6. I am a mother and am excited to be a proud member. This was launched by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) to focus and facilitate actions to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. World Breastfeeding Week is officially celebrated annually from Aug 1-7.
