2021 National Breastfeeding Month


Declared by the United States Breastfeeding Committee, August is National Breastfeeding Month!

Date: August 1 - August 31, 2021

The theme of National Breastfeeding Month 2021 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.

Register for the launch event webinar for the "Continuity of Care in Breastfeeding Support: A Blueprint for Communities" on August 24, 10 a.m. PT.  Click here for more information.
