Happy Mother’s Day Around The World!

May 8th, 2016|Comments Off on Happy Mother’s Day Around The World!

A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.
Grantly Dick-Read
While breastfeeding may not seem the right choice for every parent, it is the best choice for every baby.
Amy Spangler
Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day. It is almost always simply a matter of practical knowledge and not a question of good luck.
La Leche League
Do what you feel is right in your heart- for you’ll be criticized for it anyway.
