Loving Support Makes Breastfeeding Work

1.    Trust your body, you can do it.

2.    Breast milk helps your baby grow strong and healthy.

3.    Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby.  It’s just what your baby needs in just the        right amounts.

4.    Night time feedings are quick and easy.

5.    Breastfeeding saves money – there is nothing to buy.  You will have more money for            you and your baby.

6.    Going out is simple.  Breastfed babies are easy to take along.

7.    Breastfeeding is the one thing only a mother can do.

8.    Breast milk changes to meet your growing baby’s needs.  No formula can do that.

9.    Breast milk is gentle to your baby’s stomach and very easy to digest.

10.  Your early breast milk gives your baby protection against disease.  Breastfed babies            have fewer allergies, childhood cancers, asthma, or autoimmune disorders.

11.  Skin-to-Skin contact makes breastfeeding work.

Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day. It is almost always simply a matter of practical knowledge and not a question of good luck.          - La Leche League
