WORLD BREASTFEEDING WEEK (Coordinated by WABA)1-7 August 2015
This World Breastfeeding Week, WABA calls for concerted global action to support women to combine breastfeeding and work. Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed.
The idea that we are supposed to promote breast feeding for at least 6 months, but then not provide proper maternity leave has always seemed a bit bonkers and unfair. Still, many women in more resource poor settings do this all the time. There are some great photos on the website (copyright WABA)
