Breast Milk: The Original SuperFood
An often overlooked component of breastfeeding education is nutrition. Professionals and moms seem to ‘know’ that breastfeeding is ‘best,’ but very few are aware of the critical differences between breast milk and formula. Consequently, they succumb to slick promotions that take advantage of their ignorance and convince them that artificial formula is so close to breast milk that it‘s ok to supplement or wean from breastfeeding completely. Find out what makes breast milk the original super food and learn how to teach parents nutrition basics that will help them make correct infant feeding decisions. A printable handout for parents is included.
