Breastfeeding is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as the best choice for nutrition in the first year of your baby’s life. Your breast milk has been specially designed by nature to meet your baby’s ever changing needs. It’s easier for your baby to digest, boosts her immune system, and even keeps diaper rash away!

Breast feeding your baby is also cheaper than buying formula (and much more convenient). Even better, nursing can help your uterus shrink back to pre-pregnancy size more quickly, and shed leftover pregnancy weight by burning more than 450 additional calories per day!

Parenting HQ’s Breastfeeding resource section includes expert advice and information on how to breastfeed, lactation, weaning, solutions to common breast feeding problems, and much more.
