August marks breastfeeding month.
Aug 1-7 is 20th World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) with the theme “Understanding the Past – Planning the Future: Celebrating 10 years of WHO/UNICEF’s Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding.”
UAE on the other hand celebrates WBW in November each year as decided by the Ministry of Health. I don’t have any information of any activities happening on November just yet, I will surely write about it once I get some information.
What I can share with you is the wonderful helpful and supportive group here in UAE – Breastfeeding Q&A Dubai UAE. “A non-profit Dubai base support group to help mothers to breastfeed through mother to mother support. The admin are volunteers trained in breastfeeding management and support.”
If you are in the UAE and would like to know more about breastfeeding and want to have a support group away from home click on the link above. Plenty of moms will be available to answer your questions or just listen to your worries.
