World Breastfeeding Week 2016

World Breastfeeding Week is upon us! The theme for World Breastfeeding Week 2016 is Breastfeeding:  A Key to Sustainable Development.  Breastfeeding has so many benefits, but this year the focus is sustainability.  A few of the key points that are being used as the focus for this year are:

No Poverty - Breastfeeding is naturally a low-cost way of feeding babies that does not put an economic burden on the household.

Zero Hunger - Breastfeeding is food security for infant through age two and helps prevent hunger, malnutrition and obesity.

Health & Well Being - Breastfeeding improves the development, health and well being of the infant as well as improves health of the mother.

Education - Breastfeeding improves mental and cognitive development and therefore improves learning.  Educating our children help sustain the future of society as a whole.

Many breastfeeding coalitions will be hosting World Breastfeeding Week events during August 1st-7th.  Lactation Connection supports these endeavors such as the Big Latch On with donated Amamante Nursingwear auction items for these events.  If you know of an event in your area, please comment with a link to the event so local moms can attend.

Our company, Lactation Connection has been promoting breastfeeding since 1993 and provides quality affordable products to nursing mothers as the need arises.  In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, we will be offering our lowest prices of the year on nursing bras, nursing gowns and nursing pajamas.  Nursingwear is more than a luxury, it helps mothers feel comfortable promoting sustained breastfeeding past the first year.  So take advantage of our $10 nursing bras, $15 nursing gowns, and $20 nursing pajamas during our World Breastfeeding Week flash sale!  When sharing this sale, don't forget the #wbw2016 hashtag.

Believe it or not, new couples and new mothers still do not all know about the benefits of breastfeeding.  Spread the word!

Happy #wbw2016
