World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7)


World Breastfeeding Week happens every year from August 1 to August 7.  It is so important to bring awareness to the importance and health benefits of breastfeeding for the mother, the child, and the family. With that said, our fast-paced society can make breastfeeding much more difficult than it should be. Therefore it is very important for breastfeeding mothers to connect with her community and get to know all the resources available to her to make her breastfeeding journey more rewarding and beneficial to her baby. 


We have an entire section in our resource library dedicated to raising healthy family, and breastfeeding resources are definitely at the top of our priorities. Here are some downloadable books that you can access from our library to learn more about breastfeeding:
