Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal For Life!

From 1 August to 7 August it is World Breastfeeding Week 2014. Since 1991, WBW has been all about promoting breastfeeding:

WBW came up with the goal to promote exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life which yields tremendous health benefits, providing critical nutrients, protection from deadly diseases such as pneumonia and fostering growth and development

The rationale this year is:

In 1990 eight global goals, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), were set by governments and the United Nations to fight poverty and promote healthy and sustainable development in a comprehensive way by 2015. There are regular “countdowns” to gauge progress in achieving the goals. This year’s WBW theme responds to the latest countdown by asserting the importance of increasing and sustaining the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding in the post 2015 agenda, and engaging as many groups, and people of various ages as possible.

If you can please help support this worthwhile campaign. My small contribution continues to be my baby timer and reminder app, Rootn Tootn.
