FOR BREASTFEEDING PARENTS, THE WATERBIRTH-CURIOUS AND OTHER ADVOCATES OF NATURAL FAMILY LIVING

Parents! I got forwarded this email. :)


For moms out there who breastfeed and would like to breastfeed their child without having to leave work. Do pass on to those who can benefit from it especially now that (melamine tainted!) formula milk is replacing the best milk for babies..



  • BREASTFEEDING IN THE WORKPLACE

    Breastfeeding is a rewarding and nurturing experience for both working mother and child. Learn how you can continue breastfeeding even after you go back to work.

    Get helpful tips on how to sustain your supply of breast milk before you are tempted to buy a can of formula milk out of desperation.

    Find out how employers can support productive employees who desire to raise healthy children through breastfeeding.
