Guess What? It's World Breastfeeding Week!

All of us here at the UC Davis Human Lactation Center would like to send our best wishes to all of our readers who serve to promote, protect, and support breastfeeding mothers. This week is designated as World Breastfeeding Week (this always makes my son laugh) to celebrate all the work that is going on to assist mothers who have made the decision to breastfeed their babies. Of course, we also congratulate the moms who have ever breastfed or are breastfeeding!

For more information on the history of World Breastfeeding Week and this year's theme, please click here.

We'll be back next week with a slight detour in our planned posts. We're going to pass along some tips for moms or dads who must deal with the challenges of airline travel on their own with their babies.

Next time: 10 Tips for Flying (on your own) with Baby!


  1. Looking forward to your next post! I started flying solo with my baby when he was only 3 months old. A trip to France at 8 months wasn't so bad because of all the prior-planning I did. I'll be curious to see what your suggestions are for older babies since I'll soon have to fly again with my now 1 year old!

  2. We hope that you'll add your own tips! Parents traveling with babies and small children need all the help they can get.

  3. Great timing -- I'll be flying solo with our son next week!

    tip: Our son has flown several times and I've found that nursing him at take off and landing prevents ear aches.
