World Breastfeeding Week is one of my favourite awareness weeks, I believe that the increased awareness, sharing of information and support goes a long way to increase breastfeeding rates in South Africa, which ultimately saves lives.


This year, the theme is all about sustainable development, do you know just how much breastfeeding impacts sustainable development?

Well stay tuned for the week of August 1st through to the 7th to find out just how amazing breastfeeding is and how much of an impact it has on everything from poverty reduction to water preservation!


Here is a sneak peak on how breastfeeding impacts our world and our ability to live sustainably.
