Breastfeed your Child

Breastfeed your child.

It is the best way to nourish your newborn / infant / toddler.

It is all natural / organic / sustainable / green.

Here are a couple more reasons to do so:
  • According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "Human milk is species-specific, and all substitute feeding preparations differ markedly from it, making human milk uniquely superior for infant feeding.
  • The American Dietic Association also believes that "the bonding that occurs during breastfeeding makes it a special choice."
  • Breast milk is always ready and comes in a nicer package than formula does.
  • Breast milk contains immunities to diseases and aids in the development of baby's immune system.
  • Breastfeeding satisfies baby's emotional needs and increases bonding between mother and baby.
  • Breastfeeding protects baby against respiratory infections
  • Breastfeeding decreases chances of osteoporosis.

Breastfeeding may be the best choice but it may not always be the easiest choice. If you are having problems breastfeeding you should see a professional. You could also call the Breastfeeding Hotline at 1-800-994-9662
