Did You Know?

Breast milk has been scientifically proven to provide protection from diarrhea, upper respiratory infections, ear infections, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), allergies, asthma, and obesity. Mothers benefit by reducing their risks of breast and ovarian cancers, osteroporosis, and more quickly returning to their pre-pregnancy weights. The joys of attachment, maternal confidence and self-esteem that breastfeeding provide are immeasurable.
