August is National Breastfeeding Month!

August 2, 2022

August is National Breastfeeding Month and highlights the value of breastfeeding for mothers and children. Breastmilk has everything a growing baby needs in exactly the right amounts and is easy to digest. It delivers health, nutritional and emotional benefits to both children and mothers. But while breastfeeding is a natural process, it is not always easy. Mothers need support – both to get started and to continue breastfeeding.

You can read about all about breastfeeding in the August Pollywog Parent Newsletter. Also available in Spanish - Todo sobre la lactancia.
