Great Online Resource For Breastfeeding Moms

I was made aware of a great website for nursing moms today! It's part of the "Breastmilk. Every Ounce Counts." campaign here in Texas by the Department of Health Services. The website is "an informative and interactive site that educates new and expecting moms on preparing for the hospital, baby’s first days home, returning to work and much more". It's a great site, please check it out!

Breast Milk Counts.com

Here's some fun breastfeeding benefits to consider:

For Mom:
• Saves money in formula and health care costs
• Provides a special bond between mom and baby
• Burns up to 600 calories a day
• Makes diapers less stinky
• Protects mom against cancer and diabetes

For Baby:
• Reduces babies’ risk of infections and stomach problems
• Reduces babies’ risk of allergic reactions and asthma
• Reduces babies’ risk of SIDS
• Reduces babies’ risk of childhood leukemia
• Provides baby with the most easily digested food
• Promotes babies’ healthy growth and development
• Reduces babies’ risk of obesity and diabetes
• May give baby a higher IQ—especially preemies
• Transmits mother’s immunities to baby

I'm a married, stay-at-home mom to two kiddos in grade school. I love to save money as much as I like to make it! Coupons, thrift stores? Lead the way! But wait....there's more! I have a BBA from University of Oklahoma and I was a banker and an accountant before I became a domestic goddess!
