Week 3 of National Breastfeeding Month is Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Breastfeeding week and the theme is a beautiful one - reclaiming the tradition of breastfeeding. I think this is an aspect of breastfeeding we may not always think about, but the roots of traditional parenting and community are intertwined with breastfeeding. As I did last week, I’ll be sharing stories to highlight the voices of those in these communities. ❤️

The third week of August is Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Breastfeeding Week! We’re sharing AANHPI breastfeeding stories through the week.
When Amy Chen's family immigrated from Taiwan, her mother gave up breastfeeding because of the idea of "assimilating into American Culture." Now a mother of three, Amy believes it's time to reclaim the tradition of breastfeeding.
Stay tuned for more stories!
