• World Breastfeeding Week (August 1 – 7) began over twenty years ago by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), a global network of individuals and organizations, including the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Maryland has gone a step further and will use the entire month (August 1st – 31st) to celebrate, educate and raise awareness about breastfeeding. Check out the Governor’s Proclamation!
    To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and Maryland’s Breastfeeding Month, the Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition is collecting photos of breastfeeding babies/toddlers/children/ breastfeeding families to be used on social media and in projects to support breastfeeding.
