Can we celebrate World Breastfeeding Week by taking a break from breastfeeding?


Dear nursing parents, 

What if we celebrate world breastfeeding week by taking a break?


That's right. Celebrate by putting the baby/bottle/pump down. 


Now hand your baby to a partner, a parent, a neighbor, a doula, a sister, a friend. 

Take some time for yourself. 

Just an hour. 

To reflect: On the goals you met. On the goals that changed. 

To grieve the things that were different or harder than expected. Grieve the plans that went out the window. 

Now, do something you like doing. 

Go for a walk. 

Read a book. (okay, part of a book) 

Watch a movie. (okay, part of a movie) 

Get a fancy coffee. 

Get lunch. 

Get a cocktail. 

Put on clothes you feel good in. 

Talk to a friend on the phone. 



Sing along to the radio. 


In the hard moments nursing a baby can feel endless.  Even thankless. There are no clear moments to stop and congratulate yourself for hard work put in. 


So maybe we could use the last day of World Breastfeeding Week as a day for parents to celebrate the hard work and congratulate themselves, regardless of how you feed your babies. 


Today is a great day to take an hour to reflect on how far you’ve come and celebrate by doing something you like, just because you can. 


With love, 

Victoria Facelli, IBCLC
