Only a Mother Can Give. . .

(picture of mother holding her infant) Breastfeeding your baby is a special way to begin your life together. It is the natural way for your baby to adjust to the world after birth. Your milk is easy to digest, has everything your baby needs to grow and protects your baby from many diseases.

Breastfeeding is a wonderful gift only a mother can give!
