I have to post this for a class- breastfeeding is awesome!
Did you know?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that breastfeeding continue for at least 12 months
For most babies breast milk is easier to digest than formula.
Formula cannot match the chemical makeup of human breast milk
Formula and feeding supplies can cost well over $1,500 each year
Breastfeeding is linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and postpartum depression in women
Breastfed infants typically need fewer sick care visits, prescriptions, and hospitalizations.
Breastfeeding is also better for the environment.
