This Saturday, August 6th, breastfeeding moms will attempt to break a world record for the most women breastfeeding at one time. The event, sponsored by the La Leche League in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, will start at 10:30am at locations around the country.
World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated from August 1 to 7 in over 170 countries as a way to raise awareness about breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world. This year’s theme is “Talk to Me! Breastfeeding – a 3D Experience” and focuses on encouraging communication about breastfeeding through the use of new social media.
