Breastfeeding

If you had the ability of helping your newborn child be healthier and have a stronger immune system, wouldn’t you maximize the opportunity to do so? There are several benefits of breastfeeding our children. Breast milk provides essential nutrients vital to a child’s early development. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “human milk feeding decreases the incidence and/or severity of a wide range of infectious diseases.” Nursing also provides many benefits to women, such as lower risk of breast & ovarian cancer, weight loss, mother & baby bonding time, and let’s not forget saving money.

Breastfeeding is a natural function that a mother-to-be can embrace and look forward to. Now, what happens when you are in a public place, a mall, a store, a park? Some people do not react well to breastfeeding being done in public. However, it is your right as a nursing mother to do so wherever necessary.

Here is what you should know about the Florida Breastfeeding Law, http://www.flbreastfeeding.org/legislation.htm
