August is World Breastfeeding Month. More specificaly the first through the seventh. This is the month that we, as lactation support people, focus on Breastfeeding and have an excuse to promote it in public. I am planning a celebration baby shower for the breastfeeding women in the community on the last Saturday of the month. So if you were breastfed, or have breastfed, or have a spouse family member that breastfeeds thank them. And give the nursing mother in the store or mall that you pass this month a smile and know that they are giving thier children the "Gold Standard" of infant feeding.
