All around the world, World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year on August 1 – 7.

This year’s theme is “Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life!”

For more information visit the official World Breastfeeding Week website.

In North America, we celebrate on October 1 – 7.  Why? Because October 1 – 7 is the 40th week of the year! Following 40 weeks gestation, breastfeeding begins!
