August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month!

For those of you who weren't aware, August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month! In honor I will be posting, information, resources, and deals every Monday, all month that coincide with breastfeeding.

When you breastfeed your baby, you're providing him with the best possible infant food. No product has ever been as time-tested as mother's milk. Human milk contains all the nutrients your newborn needs and is more easily digested and assimilated than any other infant food. As reassuring as this is, superior nutrition is only one of the many advantages you and your baby gain from breastfeeding.

Putting your newborn to the breast within minutes after delivery causes the uterus to contract and reduces the flow of blood. It also results in the uterus getting back to shape more quickly than it would if you were not breastfeeding. With his small head pillowed against your breast and your milk warming his insides, your baby knows a special closeness to you. He is gaining a firm foundation in an important area of life -- he is learning about love. - Source: La Leche League
