Home > National Breastfeeding Month

August is National Breastfeeding Month! This year’s theme of “Many Voices United” reminds us that now, more than ever, we must come together to identify and implement the policy and systems changes that are needed to ensure that every family that chooses breastfeeding has the support and resources they need to succeed. Please use the U.S. Breastfeeding’s National Breastfeeding Month social media toolkit to elevate breastfeeding in the social media conversation in August.
