This year the theme for World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is Protect Breastfeeding: A Shared Responsibility.
Historically, World Breastfeeding Week honors the August 1990 signing of the Innocenti Declaration by government policymakers, the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and other organizations. That document helped pave the way for protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding worldwide. But there is still much work to be done!
