This month is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about the joys and benefits of breastfeeding. It also allows us to highlight and discuss some of the most common struggles and complications that can arise. We look forward to providing you with beneficial resources throughout the month and would love to hear from you about your breastfeeding journey. How has it been for you? What surprised you the most? What resources do you wish you had? What advice do you have for other moms?
We would also like to mention that although August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we acknowledge that there is no right or wrong way to feed your baby. We want all families to feel represented, empowered, and confident in the decisions that are best for them – whether it is breastfeeding, formula feeding, chest feeding, tube feeding, or a combination of methods.
Here are some resources to look into:
