Benefits of Breastfeeding
August is National Breastfeeding Month, and World Breastfeeding Week is August 1-7. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports breastfeeding as the optimal way to feed your baby, ideally for at least the first 6-12 months of life. Breastfeeding provides numerous health benefits for both mother and baby, including providing perfect nutrients for baby and even some cancer protection for mother.
