2019 National WIC Breastfeeding Week

Breastfeeding

Support Moms Thorough Each Stage of their Breastfeeding Journey

Each year, National WIC Breastfeeding Week is held in conjunction with National Breastfeeding Month in August to promote and support breastfeeding as the best source of nutrition for a baby’s first year of life.  

During this month, let's get #WBW2019, #BreastfeedingMom and #WICBreastfeedingSupport trending to help promote breastfeeding! You can find sample messages, images, graphics and videos to go along with these hashtags in the 2019 National WIC Breastfeeding Week Social Media Toolkit

WIC staff can access other downloadable resources and materials on the WIC Breastfeeding Support - Learn Together. Grow Together campaign site to share with participants, dads, grandparents and WIC program partners. These resources include a flyer-sized version of campaign posters in English and Spanish. The full-sized version will be available soon!

On the WIC Works Resource System, you'll find dozens of resources to assist you with your breastfeeding promotion and support efforts, including a wide-range of publication handouts, training, information and much more, many of these resources are available in Spanish.
