World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) takes place on Thursday 1 August 2019 until Wednesday 7 August 2019. This year’s theme is empower parents, enable breastfeeding.

World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is a global network of individuals and organisations dedicated to the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding worldwide. Annually, WABA coordinates and organises WBW between 1 – 7 August.

The logo features the two adults and an infant and reinforces the importance of parents and professionals working together to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.

The WABA have set up an infographic for the week which can be downloaded here.
