Breastfeeding is a wonderful and amazing experience that draws us so close to our little ones that come into this world. A connection is forged that words alone aren’t able explain. There are so many benefits to breastfeeding for Mom as well as Baby that I can’t put them all into this page without creating a book here. So I will give you a book title and a web link to browse and get connected.
The book I have is New Mother’s Guide to Breastfeeding from the American Academy of Pediatrics by Joan Younger Meek, MD. It is full of practical advice along with a good little story accompanying each chapter as a sort of application of the point of the chapter. I found it a wonderful resource when I first started with Miranda, my first.
Another great resource is the La Leche League. They are a group of women who are committed to the goal of supporting women who desire to breastfeed. This link will provide more information. As a general rule, though, they are almost always somewhere meeting locally within each county or community. Seek them and you will undoubtedly find them!
