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!
