Posh Pads and World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding week is 1-7 of August

This is a wonderful week to celebrate healthy babies and mother's Aug 1-7. POSH Pads wants to let you know about this wonderful organization promoting and supporting womens rights to breastfeed around the world. http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/

A few reasons women don't breastfeed:
1. Lack of confidence
2. Embarrassment of breastfeeding in public
3. Loss of freedom
4. Influence of Family and Friends

Women need support from family, friends and the public as a whole. It's normal, natural and beautiful! We know it's not always easy, but with the help and support of family, friends and professionals, it can be a wonderful experience for both mother and baby.

Advantages for the baby:
1. Nutritional
2. Immunologic advantages
3. Prevention of allergies & asthma
4. Bonding and Psychosocial effects
5. Intellectual development

Advantages for the mother:
1. Economics
2. Uterine involution
3. Prevention of breast cancer (premenopausal)
4. Postpartum weight loss

Please share this information with all of your family and friends.

With Hugs and Breast Wishes!
