“Breastfeeding is a mother’s gift to herself, her baby and the earth.” –Pamela K Wiggins
Yes, breastfeeding is a mother’s gift to herself, her baby and the earth too. Growth of height, weight and immune system of babies poorly depend upon the milk they are fed during the infant stage. No milk can replace mammas milk that comes in exact temperature, taste and rich in nutrition. So, to support breastfeeding World Breastfeeding Week was formed.
“Mother’s Milk is a Liquid Love.”
“No one could give her such soothing and sensible consolation as this little three-month-old creature when he lay at her breast and she felt the movement of his lips and the snuffling of his tiny nose.” – Leo Tolstoy
“A baby nursing at a mother’s breast… is an undeniable affirmation of our rootedness in nature.” -David Suzuki
Since 1992, World Breastfeeding Week is being celebrated every year from 1st to 7th August. Many countries in the world organize promotional and support events to make everyone aware of breastfeeding benefits to mother, child and eventually to the society. A healthy society is when the people are healthy both mentally and physically. Mother’s breastfeeding to babies below six months helps to develop immune system of infant and adult too. Breastfeeding reduces the risk of infections and diarrhea. Remember that babies always love milk from mummy not from any old cow.
You can be a part of WBW day by encouraging and supporting breastfeeding with quotes and slogans.
“Nursing does not diminish the beauty of a woman’s breasts; it enhances their charm by making them look lived in and happy.” – Robert A. Heinlein
“There are three reasons for breast-feeding: the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers; and the cat can’t get it.” – Irena Chalmers
“A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.”- Grantly Dick-Read
Now a day we find many young ladies who try to avoid breastfeeding their babies, just because they are busy or they often have a misconception that breastfeeding can affect their physic. So, the WBW is to raise the awareness among people and to enlighten them that breastfeeding strengthens baby as well as mother. WHO, UNICEF promotes benefits of breastfeeding by organizing many events all around the world. The Theme of World Breastfeeding Week 2016 is “Breastfeeding-A key to Sustainable Development.”
Many social groups and individuals organize events and inspire mammas with different slogans, quotes and posters to breastfeed their babies. We have a beautiful collection of World Breastfeeding Week inspiring quotes and slogans here. You can share them if you want to be a part of the WBW.
