What are the benefits of breastfeeding?
The benefits of breastfeeding are many and varied, from supporting the immunity of a baby, providing perfect balanced nutrition for a baby, encouraging a strong bond between mother and child to reducing our carbon footprint on the planet! Both mother and baby and her family benefit from accomplishing breastfeeding, for any length of time, but up to 2 years as is recommended is best.
How does a breastfeeding box help?
Unlike other breastfeeding kits out there, which are essentially bottle feeding kits, our support kits provide education to mothers in the form of the breastfeeding handbooks. Support and education are crucial to overcoming the challenges of breastfeeding. Not only do our kits give a mama education, they then put the tools into a mamas hand to overcome things like nipple pain, engorgement, blocked ducts, mastitis and supply concerns. We also want to bring these mothers into our community at Mamas Milkbar, into the sisterhood of motherhood, to support each other.
How can a breastfeeding box save time and money?
Once baby arrives, there is very little spare time to find things like breast shells, breast pumps and heat packs to help with the physical challenges of breastfeeding, and many of these products are hard to get your hands on. The breastfeeding box brings all these goodies together. The true cost of breastfeeding is really very low, with sterile free food on tap for baby for as long as she needs. Formula feeding can cost a family up to $700 in the first 6 months, let alone the first year exceeding $1000! Supporting a family to breastfeed will save them hundreds, if not thousands of dollars!
