World Breastfeeding Week 2023

August 1st - August 7th

“Enabling breastfeeding: making a difference for working parents.

This year’s theme is important because:

  • Workplace challenges remain the most common reason for women to never breastfeed or to stop breastfeeding earlier than recommended.
  • Parents need adequate time and support to breastfeed. Parents with less than 3 months of maternity leave reported shorter breastfeeding duration than those with 3 or more months of leave.
  • A workplace needs adequate breastfeeding facilities to become a breastfeeding-friendly workplace. Only 42 countries mandate workplace breastfeeding facilities.
  • Protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding addresses inequalities that stand in the way of sustainable development (source: WABA, 2023).
