Make Breastfeeding a Success with Peer Counseling Support
Breastfeeding is loaded with benefits for baby and for mom!
Breastfeeding is so important because it helps keep your baby healthy. It supplies all the necessary nutrients in the proper proportions and protects against allergies, sickness, obesity, and diseases like diabetes and cancer. Breast milk is also easily digested by your baby which means less fussiness!
A really cool thing about your breast milk is it changes to meet your baby’s needs. The amount changes according to the time of day, nursing frequency, and age of the baby. All the guess work is done for you when you breastfeed.
Breast milk is always ready! It is available whenever and wherever your baby is hungry and it’s always warm! You don’t have to worry about keeping bottles clean or dealing with the waste.
Breastfeeding is also great for moms!
Breastfeeding reduces the risk of diabetes and certain cancers.
Many breastfeeding moms return to their pre-pregnancy weight because breastfeeding burns calories and helps shrink the uterus.
And of course, breastfeeding strengthens the bond between mommy and child.
Community Health Center of the North Country has peer counselors who are here to help!
