World Breastfeeding Week – level 3

07-08-2015 07:00

Over 300 women launched World Breastfeeding Week in Manila by participating in a mass breastfeeding event. The women joined an event called ’The Big Latch On’ which is part of World Breastfeeding Week where women nurse their babies for over a minute.

“I joined this campaign to empower women because I want to become a role model also of other women that breastfeeding is not impossible. Everything is possible through the right information, through proper guidance, and it empowers women. Women are not any less of a mom if they cannot breastfeed. They just ask for help and the right guidance.”

’The Big Latch On,’ an event along with World Breastfeeding Week, is aimed at promoting breastfeeding, offering support, guidance and nutritional information to mothers. The campaign, which is held on the first week of August each year, also aims to highlight the barriers in societies around the world that prevent women from feeling at ease breastfeeding their children in public.

Difficult words: launch (to start), latch on (when a baby gets its mouth into the correct position around the nipple to breastfeed), nurse (breastfeed), empower (to give power), barrier (when you feel like you can’t do something).
