The first week in August is always World Breastfeeding Week, and in honor of it, I thought I'd post one of my favorite "cult classic" pictures (well, in the breastfeeding world it's a classic). Obviously, this is one smart baby!
The research is astoundingly clear about breastfeeding - it is truly magical stuff. The thing is, it can be difficult to do when you live in a society that doesn't support it. If you haven't grown up witnessing aunties and cousins breastfeed their newborn, or if you feel the glare of other people when you try to nurse in public, you're going to tempted to break out the free formula.
Breastfed babies end up smarter, healthier, and leaner. So, it makes economical sense for our country to embrace breastfeeding and not shun it.
The shirt at the top says it all, and it is a perfect gift for the lactating momma in your life!
