August 1st kicks off World Breastfeeding Week, in honor of the adoption of the Innocenti Declaration in 1990 to ensure the protection, promotion, and support of exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, and continued breastfeeding up to and beyond 2 years by the World Health Organization. Tallahassee had several events to celebrate and raise awareness for breastfeeding in our community. We attended some fabulous local events including the Big Latch On, the TMH Breastfeeding panel, and the Wic Walk for Breastfeeding to show our support and celebrate Breastfeeding in our community.
