Hello, mommies. August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. This campaign pushes to empower moms to commit to breastfeeding. It highlights the benefits of such including aids baby’s development, reduces allergy and risk to illness, and prevents diarrhea among others.
And in celebration of this awareness campaign, I have here a Pigeon gift pack to support a mom or a mom-to-be on her breastfeeding journey.
Just to share, when I gave birth to our Yael a year ago, I was awake and aware of my surroundings. Immediately after delivery, my OB Gynecologist placed our baby boy on my abdomen. I have witnessed how he used his instinct – sniffing along the way – to inch his way towards my breasts and nurse for the very first time. This, as explained to me by the midwife who was likewise present, gives babies that first hour of life to be accustomed to breastfeeding. Such a beautiful experience that from that moment on, I vowed to myself I will feed him for at least six months with nothing but my milk.
I pray that you get to experience that, too. Simply awe-inspiring.
