Nat’l Breastfeeding Month

Dear Editor,

Motherhood should be celebrated all year long and breastfeeding is a mother’s natural way of feeding their child. Next month is National Breastfeeding Month in the United States. Breastfeeding benefits both mother and baby after pregnancy. In honor of this special month, BelleMa Breast Pumps want to share some interesting facts about breastfeeding.

World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. The following are few benefits of breastfeeding:

· Breastfeeding should start within one hour of birth

· It should occur as often as the infant wants, day or night

· Mothers experience a reduced risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis

· A baby girl will reduce her lifetime risk of breast cancer by 25%

· Infants and babies are less likely to get sick

· Reducing the chances of ear infections, diarrhea and stomach problems with your baby

Breastfeeding saves money, the average family will save anywhere between $1,200 and $1,500 annually in formula-related expenses. These are some quick and easy facts to remember, to help raise awareness about National Breastfeeding Month. Please consider BelleMa’s breastfeeding facts when covering National Breastfeeding Month. Best, Tamara Argueta Sr. PR Executive
