Celebrating National Breastfeeding Month and International Breastfeeding Week

National Breastfeeding Month and International Breastfeeding week both occur in August, so Capital Women’s Care wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate some of the benefits of breastfeeding.

The American Association of Pediatrics recommends that mothers breastfeed exclusively for six months, before introducing any other food to their baby. After other foods are introduced after six months of age, it is recommended that mothers breastfeed in conjunction with other foods for at least six more months.

Breastfeeding - Nurturing & Nourishment Benefits for Mom & Baby

Breastfeeding offers moms and babies great benefits to their overall health and well-being while providing a special opportunity to begin a nurturing, life-long bond. With planning, knowledge, practice, and patience, breastfeeding moms can successfully provide baby’s nutrition, optimize baby and personal health, and enrich their maternal relationship with baby. We’d like to share important benefits babies and moms gain from breastfeeding.
