National Breastfeeding Month

August 2019logo_english (1)

Every year, ITCA WIC local agencies highlight the importance of promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding by celebrating World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month during the month of August. This year’s theme Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding celebrates how we can work together to advocate for breastfeeding policy changes, improve workplace support and empower both parents so they can reach their breastfeeding goals.


ITCA WIC plays an important role in the promotion and support of breastfeeding on many of the reservations throughout Arizona. Breastfeeding is a team effort and when fathers, partners, families, hospitals, workplaces and communities support nursing moms, breastfeeding improves.
