Happy Friday!! 🤱#breastmilkdoesthebodygood
World Breastfeeding Week Celebration Day #6 "Sustaining breastfeeding together" is the theme. Breastfeeding is one thing that has been sustained by women worldwide. Although at one point in the 70s the breastfeeding initiation rates dropped to a record low. Through education and awareness we are increasing the rates, the national rate being slightly over 81% I saw the historical pictures; I have to say, I wonder which breastfeeding pictures from today will go down in history.... Women hiding in the bathroom to breastfeed??? The public frowning as they walk by a breastfeeding mother on the park bench??? #timeforachange #supportbreastfeedinginpublic
