August is KY 'Breastfeeding Awareness Month' The month of August is Kentucky 'Breasffeeding Aware- ness Month' and public health officials are calling attention to this important topic. Special focus will occur dur- ing the World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7. This year's theme is "Breastfeeding: In a Globalized World for Peace and Justice." The theme will focus on ways to think globally about breastfeed- ing, but act within your commu- nity to protect, support and pro- mote breastfeeding. Many activities are planned throughout the state celebrating breastfeeding. Walks, the Rock and Relax Booth at the Kentucky State Fair, special pro- motions and displays will'be set up in communities around the state promoting breastfeeding. The Kentucky Women. Infants and Children (WIC) Program was one of nine pro- grams in the states and Indian Territories to receive a federally funded grant in 2002 from the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service (USDA/FNS) to pro- mote Breastfeeding in Eastern Kentucky. The project "Using Loving Support to Build a Breastfeeding Friendly Community" kicked off with training in Eastern Kentucky in December of 2002. The "Loving Support" Project is moving forward and training will be provided statewide by the fall of 2003. The grant will focus on provid- ing breastfeeding education to public health staff, health pro- fessionals, encouraging devel- opment of breastfeeding coali- tions, and providing education to employers on the benefit of employees who breastfeed. Kentucky WIC Program will be part of a national ad cam- paign with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Women's Health and "will launch a three-year media campaign in the fall of 2003. The media campaign will be based on the goals, objectives, and recommendations of the Health and Human Services Blueprint for Action on Breastfeeding, and will primari- ly target first time parents who would not normally breastfeed. The campaign will be marketed through a variety of channels and strategies such as TV and radio public service announce- ments, bus stop posters, bill- boards, educational pamphlets and articles in community news- papers, parenting and women's magazines and websites. When a mother makes the decision to breastfeed she is offering her child the best food that meets all their needs for the first six months of life. The national Healthy People 2010 goals--a set of health measures --are to have 75 percent of the women breastfeeding at birth, 50 percent breastfeeding at six months and 25% breastfeedine at 12 months. Currently, Kentucky WIC Program data indicates that 27.6 % of WIC mother's breastfeed at birth. Breastfeeding is a public health issue. Research shows the breastfeeding enhances the effectiveness of immunizations, lowers the risk of allergies, reduces the risk of an infant becoming obese later in life- therefore reducing the risk of chronic diseases, reduces infec- tion, risk of breast and ovarian cancer in women, reduces risk of SIDS and reduces hospital- ization and overall health care cost. Breastfeeding increases infant IQ and provides comfort and bonding. Breastfeeding is a gift that mothers give their babies that will last a lifetime.
