Guam CEDDERS participated in the signing of a proclamation declaring August as “Breastfeeding Awareness Month” on Guam. This year’s World Breastfeeding Week theme is “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together.” Guam has a comprehensive breastfeeding protection law, The Nana yan Patgon Act (PL 32-098), which protects and supports a mother’s right to breastfeed anywhere and anytime, and to express milk for her child while working or going to school. Acting Governor Ray Tenorio presided at the event held on August 2 and attended by numerous breastfeeding advocates and government representatives.
