WBW promotes breastfeeding awareness and education. The theme for 2011 is Breastfeeding: A 3D Experience.
From the official site:
When we look at breastfeeding support, we tend to see it in two-dimensions: time (from pre-pregnancy to weaning) and place (the home, community, health care system, etc). But neither has much impact without a THIRD dimension — communication!
Let’s help communicate about breastfeeding for this year’s WBW! Share your posts in the linky at the bottom, and grab the code from the box to use on your own page. Simply copy and paste the code (in html) at the end of any breastfeeding post. The linky will update automatically on everyone’s sites as new posts are added throughout the week!
