The Recipe for Breastfeeding Support in America
Breastfeeding is one of the healthiest nourishments there is; it is a public good. It is not just physically nourishing, but mentally, developmentally, and metabolically nourishing for both mother and child. Breastfeeding is reciprocal: it is nourishing and beneficial for the giver (mother) as well as the receiver (child). Breastfeeding does entail work and time--it is a full time job in the early months and breastfeeding mothers deserve support as a way to recompense their work. But in the United States, equitable access to breastfeeding support is still a goal yet to be achieved. How do we provide support to the parents who need it, and how will that benefit our country as a whole? Find out in The Recipe for Breastfeeding Support in America, by breastfeeding consultant and La Leche League Leader Erin L O'Reilly.
