World Breastfeeding Week 2017
August 1-7

WABA2017It’s a time of celebration! As LLLI celebrates its 60th anniversary, we joined with World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in its 25th anniversary of World Breastfeeding Week (WBW). This year’s emphasis was “working together for the common good.” The campaign marked an opportunity for us to work together in the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding worldwide!

View the full LLLI statement regarding WBW 2017 here.


Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
