World Breastfeeding Week – level 1

07-08-2015 07:00

Over 300 women participate in an event. The event happens in Manilla, Philippines. Women at the event breastfeed for one minute. The event is part of World Breastfeeding Week.

The event helps women. They can learn. Some women do not breastfeed in public. They do not feel fine. This event tells them that this is OK.

Difficult words: participate (to do something), breastfeed (to give a baby milk from one part of the body – the breast), in public (not alone; with other people).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about breastfeeding in public?
