Little by little, step by step, day by day…..

I continue to work at keeping up with the technology available to us. So, today I finally opened up a Facebook account for my business, All About Breastfeeding. I even took pictures of my office and uploaded them onto the site. Okay, Okay, if truth be told, my husband Alan handled that part for me. Thanks honey!

Please take a few moments to check out the site and become a fan of All About Breastfeeding to help spread the word that:

Breastfeeding should not hurt!
If it does, it means that something is not quite right!
If you are having challenges, there is help available!

Here are just some of the many good reasons why you should breastfeed your baby:

•Breast milk is the most complete form of nutrition for infants. Breast milk has just the right amount of fat, sugar, water, and protein that is needed for a baby’s growth and development. Most babies find it easier to digest breast milk than they do formula.

•As a result, breastfed infants grow exactly the way they should. They tend to gain less unnecessary weight and to be leaner. This may result in being less overweight later in life.

•Premature babies do better when breastfed compared to premature babies who are fed formula

Of course, there are many more reasons to breastfeed your baby, however, the best reason to breastfeed your baby, is just because you want to. There is no better reason that this!
