World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) runs annually from August 1st to August 7th.


The 2019 campaign slogan “Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding” was chosen to be inclusive of all types of parents in today’s world. Focusing on supporting both parents to be empowered is vital in order to realise their breastfeeding goals.


Empowerment is a process that requires evidence-based unbiased information and support to create the enabling environment where mothers can breastfeed optimally. Breastfeeding is in the mother’s domain and when fathers, partners, families, workplaces, and communities support her, breastfeeding improves.


We can all support this process, as breastfeeding is a team effort. To enable breastfeeding we all need to protect, promote and support it.


The objectives of the 2019 World Breastfeeding Week campaign are:



  • TO INFORM people about the links between gender-equitable parental social protection and breastfeeding

  • TO ANCHOR parent-friendly values and gender-equitable social norms at all levels to support breastfeeding

  • TO ENGAGE with individuals and organisations for greater impact

  • TO GALVANISE action on gender-equitable parental social protection to advance breastfeeding


Simone Sheehan, HSA Dietician strongly advocate that mothers initiate breastfeeding within the first hour of life and extend exclusive breastfeeding into the first six months. Exclusive breastfeeding means the infant only receives breastmilk without any additional food or drink, including water. It provides all the water, high quality nutrients and energy a baby needs and is a means of food security for infants.


According to Ms. Sheehan, “Breastfeeding not only significantly improves the health of infants and young children, but improves mental and cognitive development thus promoting learning as well. The experience can also be satisfying and empowering for the mother.”
