August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month!
A mother’s breast milk has all of the nutrition a baby needs to grow up healthy and protect against illness and infection – but it’s not just good for baby! Breastfeeding lowers mothers’ risk for type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, and helps mom get back to pre-pregnancy weight. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months with continued breastfeeding through 1 year (along with introduction of age-appropriate foods).
