August is National Breastfeeding Month!

Now that your baby is finally here, you might have quite a few questions about how best to care for your infant.  One of the best ways is to breastfeed your baby!

For National Breastfeeding Month, our clinics in the St. Paul, MN area will discuss the benefits of breastfeeding, food to avoid, and tips to make the process go more smoothly for you and your baby.


Breastfeeding has both emotional and physical benefits for new babies. Many providers recommend that new mothers at least attempt to breastfeed, as breast milk contains most nutrients and vitamins a new baby needs.

Children who breastfeed, generally have stronger immune systems and are less likely to become overweight.  Other benefits of breastfeeding include reducing the risk of cancer to both the mother and baby as well as reducing ear infections, ER visits,  and frequency of asthma in your baby.

The act of breastfeeding helps solidify the bond between child and mother, boosting your relationship and helping your baby develop socially. Touch, closeness, and interaction are all essential for infants and nursing helps calm your infant as well. You’ll likely benefit from these peaceful moments with your baby.

Don’t forget that mothers more easily lose weight when breastfeeding! Also, nursing is cheaper than formula feeding and typically requires fewer or no bottles at all!
