Ellis, Bellevue mark World Breastfeeding Week

Friday, August 5, 2022

From The Daily Gazette:

For all mothers — new, expecting or otherwise — the topic of breastfeeding can be a daunting one. From postpartum exhaustion to latch issues to finding spaces in public to feed, moms who breastfeed or are hoping to breastfeed can often feel overwhelmed by the task.

That’s why this week it is time to “Step up for Breastfeeding” — at least according to the theme of this year’s World Breastfeeding Week, which began Monday.

Started in 1992 by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated annually from Aug. 1 to Aug. 7. The goal? To raise public awareness and support for breastfeeding.

“World Breastfeeding Week is a really important week to acknowledge people who have put time and effort into lactation,” said Kelsey Munn-Wilson, RD, IBCLC, CDN, a Community Lactation Consultant and Community Education Lead at Niskayuna’s Bellevue Woman’s Center.
