National Breastfeeding Month

August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The breastfeeding campaign, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hopes to empower women to commit to breastfeeding by highlighting new research showing that babies who are exclusively breastfed for six months are less likely to develop ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses, and may be less likely to develop childhood obesity.

In celebration of Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we've compiled the following guide to serve as your one-stop resource for the information and support you'll need to be successful at breastfeeding. Arm yourself with information now, and you'll thank yourself later for giving your baby the best possible start in life.
