Convince Her

The advantages of breastfeeding are numerous!  I just got done reading an article on 101 Reasons to Breastfeed by Leslie Burby.  It still amazes me how something so simple can have such an impact on the mother, child, father, environment and society.  Every year more research comes out supporting why breastmilk is best.   Unfortunately, initiation rates for breastfeeding hover around 75% in the United States.  If you were to try to convince a mom that was on the fence between choosing breast milk or formula, what would your favorite advantage(s) be to convince her?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!!
You can also share them at our meeting on Thursday at 6:30 pm at Elegant Mommy in Sioux Falls.  Please help spread the word that Elegant Mommy has moved to a different location.  They are now behind the Hyvee on Minnesota.  I hope to see many of you there and bring a friend!!
