As you may know, we are very big proponents of breastfeeding. I know that for some people this isn't a viable options--for a myriad of reasons--but generally speaking, we feel that "breast is best." To do my little part to further breastfeeding awareness, I wanted to share some links in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week (Aug 1-7). You can find the official website for this event here. And their press release is here. I won't spend a lot of space here up on a soapbox, but I will say that campaigns/events like this one strive to educate people worldwide about the benefits of breastfeeding. This is especially important in impoverished nations where breastfeeding can provide babies with important immunities (via mom's milk) and where formula is incredibly expensive. Please take a few minutes to check out their website and support this worthy cause.
