National Breastfeeding Month!

National Breastfeeding Month!

August is National Breastfeeding Month!

National Breastfeeding Month is dedicated to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding. Breastfeeding supports a connection between mother and baby, and provides nutritional benefits to both mother and baby. Celebrating August as National Breastfeeding Month allows us to foster a supportive community for all breastfeeding mothers and recognize the incredible journey of breastfeeding. Let’s toast to all mothers who choose to breastfeed! Also, keep reading to enter in our amazing give-a-way!

The Powerful Connection

National Breastfeeding Month highlights the powerful bond between mother and baby that is nurtured through breastfeeding. Not only does breastmilk provide nourishment, breastfeeding creates a deep emotional connection. During breastfeeding, mother’s are able to provide skin-to-skin contact, eye contact, and being able to soothe your baby. This connection provides a sense of security and trust that provides a beginning to a positive, loving relationship to last a lifetime. While breastfeeding, oxytocin (also known as “the love hormone”) is released, which helps mom’s emotional well-being as well!

A Nutritional Superhero

Have you heard of “liquid gold”? That’s right! Breastmilk is nicknamed “liquid gold” and for good reasons! Your breastmilk is tailor-made for your baby. Packed with essential nutrients, antibodies, and enzymes, breast milk not only supports their growth and development, it also helps protect babies from illnesses. And breastmilk is constantly evolving to meet your baby’s needs as they grow.

Community and Support

Here at Milky Mama, we love to share stories and educate each other. While we acknowledge the benefits of breastmilk and breastfeeding, we also understand the difficult journey breastfeeding can sometimes be. By encouraging mothers to share their experiences and offer encouragement, we are building a community that supports one another. We help each other, cheer each other on, and celebrate milestones with each other. When we have this supportive community, we know, we are not alone in our times of joy nor in our times of struggle.
