Breastfeeding Week happens between August 1-7. It aims to build awareness about the benefits of Breastfeeding all around the world.
Since stars and influencers can impact people, thanks to their vogue, their participation makes a difference. Acknowledging this, celebrity moms, both from Hollywood and Bollywood do their maximum to discuss the benefits of Breastfeeding. From Halsey, Neha Dhupia to Dia Mirza and Lisa Haydon, everyone has spoken up on why Breastfeeding is favorable.
World Breastfeeding Week
Halsey is very pleased and excited at her baby’s arrival just in time to commemorate world breastfeeding week.
The famous pop star gave birth to Ender Ridley Aydin, her first kid with boyfriend Alev Aydin, on July 14.
World Breastfeeding Week 2021 began on August 1. The International campaign, which puts forward awareness and spreads knowledge about breastfeeding began in 1992. It is a global agenda that ensures, promotes, and supports Breastfeeding, as per the world coalition for breastfeeding action.
“#worldbreastfeedingweek,” Halsey shared a picture of herself breastfeeding their baby in the middle of an empty grass lawn.
Lisa Haydon Too Joined In The Awareness Campaign
Lisa Haydon, too, had participated in an online meeting about Breastfeeding moms. While posting a picture with her son Zack, Lisa wrote, ”Breastfeeding has played such a big part in getting back into shape after giving birth to my baby. It has been challenging and time-consuming (literally hours spent every day trying to stimulate milk supply) but it’s such a beautiful way to form a relationship with your child and all the nutritional benefits that your child gets from your milk.”
World Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign 2021
World breastfeeding week (WBW) is an international campaign to put forward awareness and galvanize action on themes associated with Breastfeeding.
#WBW2021 will point on how Breastfeeding renders to the survival, health, and wellbeing of all. The campaign accentuates the connections between Breastfeeding and survival, health and wellbeing of women, children, and nations.

Although backing at the individual level is very significant, Breastfeeding must be contemplated as a social health issue that requires involvement at all levels. The idea of building back better after the Covid-19 pandemic will deliver an opportunity to build a warm chain of support for Breastfeeding that comprises health systems, workplaces, and societies at all levels of the community. A warm chain of support will create an enabling setting for Breastfeeding and protect against business influence.
It is time to educate, anchor, engage and galvanize action to insure breastfeeding at all levels.
Covid-19 Pandemic And Breastfeeding
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a lot of misinterpreted information around Breastfeeding. The World Health Organization (WHO) declares that “transmission of active Covid-19 through breast milk and breastfeeding has not been detected to date. There is no reason to avoid or stop Breastfeeding.”
