Black Breastfeeding Week

Black Breastfeeding Week

Black Breastfeeding Week is a yearly worldwide campaign founded in 2012 by breastfeeding advocates Kimberly Seals Allers, Kiddada Green and Anayah Sangodele-Ayoka. It takes place during the last week of August every year.

Breastfeeding is one of the best investments for saving lives and improving the health, social and economic development of individuals and nations. In the US and in other parts of the world breastfeeding rates amongst black people are lower than their white counterparts. The most recent CDC data show that 75% of white women have ever breastfed versus 58.9% of black women. The Black Breastfeeding Week campaign serves to help reduce these racial disparities by raising awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding amongst black communities.

boobingit fully support the yearly campaign and runs its own unique events and initiatives to further bring awareness around key black breastfeeding matters and issues.
