Even though women have been breastfeeding for hundreds of years, the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) officially made August National Breastfeeding Awareness Month in 2011. The goal is to provide more education and support for breastfeeding mothers.
Breastfeeding has been proven to have numerous health benefits for baby and for mom, especially when a baby is exclusively breastfed from birth to six months.
At All About Women, we strongly support breastfeeding and want to provide you with all the resources you need to succeed. Browse the articles and information listed below to learn all about breastfeeding.

If you have any other problems or concerns about breastfeeding, we encourage you to reach out to your OB/GYN or a lactation consultant to get the help and support you need. Breastfeeding takes practice (for both mom and baby) and sometimes there are hiccups along the way.
Consider making an appointment with one of our Florida obstetricians at All About Women today to talk through all of your pregnancy and infant care questions.
