Babe receives comfort and sustenance while sick. Stomach virus was going around the area in May - not fun! If the breastfed baby does get sick (it happens!), they are generally still tolerant and happy with breastmilk, if nothing else.
The breast cures all. Did your babe fall? Older baby flipping out for an unidentified reason? Many babes quiet when offered the breast if they are upset.
Convenient. Travelling? With an under 6 month old, you're all set!
Burns calories. In the beginning, many moms burn up to 500 calories per day - that's worth a lot of running!
Figure returns sooner. Breastfeeding stimulates oxytocin release which helps the uterus return to it's no baby size. Couple that with the calories required to produce milk, and... Awesome.
There are so many other advantages! Please join us at our June meeting and share why you love breastfeeding. Not in love? That's ok; you're welcome too.
