National Breastfeeding Month 2021
August is National Breastfeeding Month.
This year, the theme is Every Step of the Way.
"We envision a world in which every family is supported at every step along the infant feeding journey, with warm and coordinated hand-offs and transitions so that the needs of lactating families and those who support them are anticipated and met, every step of the way."
