Breastfeeding with Love - Ask a lactation consultant!
by Betty H Greenman
Hi Sarit, I wanted to take a moment before I start my day to speak to you about the benefits of breastfeeding. I have been blessed to have breastfed eight children. My oldest is thirty and youngest is fifteen. Seven years ago, I had made a decision to return back to school. When my oldest struggled to breastfeed her first one she said, "Mom, I think you will make a great Lactation Consultant." After four years of college, five long conferences away from home, two years of internship and passing my boards, I opened up my own private lactation practice in Houston,Texas called Breastfeeding With Love. I also have spent years building a beautiful website where moms can get information on any subject on breastfeeding. I feel I have found my calling in life, helping moms daily to guide them to breastfeed their beautiful little angels, as I call them.
Breastfeeding has so many benefits and nutritious value that every mom should try to breastfeed. Sometimes, it can be challenging. I have had two preemies and I know how hard it is to try to breastfeed a baby who has not been to the breast in three and a half weeks but, eventually gets on and does well.
So, moms out there, try to breastfeed and look for support groups that encourage you to breastfeed. Remember to always try to do something nice for yourself, even if it is only taking a warm bath every morning. You are important and your baby needs you.
Have a blessed day. This is a beautiful website Sarit and I feel honored to be able to leave my story here.
Moms can e mail me with breastfeeding questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
